Ibn 'Arabi is one of the greatest writers of mystical literature of any era. The voyages recounted in the enigmatic Secrets of Voyaging offer readers an inexhaustible source of reflection on the nature of the journeys of life. This unique book explores the theme of voyage and spiritual unveiling as it plays out simultaneously in the cosmological, scriptural, and mystical domains. This first English translation includes the Arabic text, based on a manuscript in Ibn 'Arabi's own hand and is accompanied by the translator's introduction and extensive notes and commentary.
