    Wow, Ivan, ecstatic cover of the new book,
    It really radiates dervish’s dance Bliss.


    Is it yours choice, the picture as well the title?

    It seems there is a little poem at the cover…

    Could you publish it in advance,
    Or any other poem from the book?

    …or it is a publisher’s secret?


    A quote tagged as “dervish”

    “One sip of this wine
    and you will go mad with drunkenness.
    You will drop your masks
    and tear your clothes — destroying
    everything that separates you from the Lover.
    Once you taste the fruit of this vine,
    you will be kicked out of the city of yourself.
    You will forget the world. You will forget yourself.
    I tell you:
    you will become a madman
    who wanders the streets looking for the Lover
    once you drink this Wine of Love.”

    ― Kamand Kojouri

    Good luck with the dervishe’s dance!

    Hi Anna~

    The book will be available within a few weeks — soon! I will definitely make a big announcement when it’s ready. A few people have made the suggestion you have, that I should share a few poems from the book early. How can I refuse? I will post something soon…

    Beautiful! Thank you so much for doing this — and everything you are doing to preserve, share and help us go deeper into the wealth of the spirit…What a sweet blessing to dance with mystics of all traditions and all times, to the music of love. Thank you! 🙂
