Llewellyn Vaughan-Lee is a Sheikh of the Naqshbandi Sufi Order. Born in London in 1953, Vaughan-Lee has followed the Naqshbandi Sufi path since he was 19. In 1991, he moved to Northern California and became the successor of Irina Tweedie, author of Chasm of Fire and Daughter of Fire: A Diary of a Spiritual Training with a Sufi Master.
In recent years, the focus of Vaughan-Lee's writing and teaching has been on spiritual responsibility in our present time of transition, and the emerging global consciousness of oneness. He has also specialized in the area of dreamwork, integrating the ancient Sufi approach to dreams with the insights of modern psychology. He is author of several books, including The Return of the Feminine and the World Soul, Alchemy of Light, and The Face Before I was Born: A Spiritual Autobiography.
