Elias Amidon is the spiritual director (Pir) of the International Sufi Way, a nonsectarian spiritual school. He shows us the blessing of realizing the silent ground of all being and expressing it in the diverse conditions of life. For those whose deepest desire is to know first-hand “the good news at the heart of reality,” he is a helpful guide.
Free Medicine is a collection of forty intimate meditations written by Sufi teacher Pir Elias Amidon. Whether describing a naked dive into a pond in the middle of the night, or a confrontation with soldiers in a Burmese temple, these meditations can serve as companions for those whose deepest desire is to know first-hand “the good news at the heart of reality.” Human, accessible, and tender, Free Medicine has the power to open us up in ways we never expected.
Amidon’s close connection with nature; his compassion for people in distress; his simple, clear observation of the mysteries of life and death; and his calm sense of humor combine in intriguing ways to reveal the uncaused happiness that is our essence. “Reading this book is a wonderful experience, full of brilliant insights, stories, images, lots of free medicine,” says Coleman Barks, author of The Essential Rumi.
