Reshad Feild

Reshad FeildReshad Feild is author of more than a dozen books, which have been translated into several different languages, and have sold a high number of copies world-wide and are considered to be among the cornerstones of modern spiritual thought.

In Search of Truth

Reshad Feild’s journeys have taken him from his native England to the far reaches of India, America and Europe. Among else he has been a pop star, a stockbroker and an antique dealer. His life has been a continual search for ever finer dimensions of Truth. Having been touched by the teachings of G.I. Gurdjieff and P.D. Ouspensky, of Tibetan Buddhism and through his meetings with Tibetan Llamas, the Native American Indians, Shamans, as well as masters of the Sufi path, he finally met up with his true Teacher.

Singer, Author, Teacher

Born in England in 1934, Reshad Feild left college after receiving a typical British education and joined the Royal Navy for two years of national service that existed during that time. After he left he went to London, where during a short period he worked in the stock market and in the advertising business. During that time he bought his first guitar, and very soon was singing in a restaurant at nights. This led to the formation of the singing group called The Springfields, which became very famous at that time, and which was given the award for the best vocal group of the year in 1963. When the group disbanded, Tim, as he was then known, went into the antique business. Not long afterwards an event occurred which completely changed his life.

The Essence of Sufism

One morning when Reshad entered an antique shop, he met Bulent Rauf (1900–1987), the man who, over the next years, was to become his spiritual teacher and whom Reshad, in his first two books The Last Barrier and To Know We're Loved (The Invisible Way), has given the name “Hamid”. It was through “Hamid” that Reshad met Suleyman Dede, who was, at that time, the Sheikh (Turkey) of the Mevlevi Dervishes in Konya. There Reshad received training into many of their inner teachings, which go back over 700 years. It was also at this time that his name was changed to Reshad, which is in fact very close to his original first name, which was Richard. Reshad Feild’s first book became well-known world-wide. It was followed by many other books as well as lectures, and music tapes and years of an extensive activity in teaching, and holding seminars. Reshad lived in the United States for 16 years before he went to Switzerland. After a long stay he is now back in England.

In Search for the Inner Meaning of Life

The whole of Reshad’s life has been one of adventure and travel throughout the world in his search for Truth and the inner meaning of life as we see it. As we read the books of Reshad Feild we realise that there is One Essential Truth, which forms the very basis of our existence on earth, and we are invited to share with him some of the questions that arise in the hearts of all true seekers. We are given a taste of the real freedom that can be experienced in our daily lives. We discover that real living is here, in this world, and not in the illusion of a spiritual dreamland.

Vorträge über die mystische Kunst und Wissenschaft des Atems

Dieses neue Buch, dessen Erstausgabe bei Chalice gleichzeitig im englischen Original sowie in einer deutschen Übersetzung erscheint, enthält einen Schatz an tiefen Einsichten aus spiritueller Perspektive in das große Mysterium des Atems. Inspirierende Vorträge, praktische Übungsanleitungen und eine Auswahl poetischer Texte aus unterschiedlichsten Traditionen laden Leserinnen und Leser ein, das Wunder des Atems auf vielen Ebenen zu erforschen.

Was ist eigentlich der Atem? Welche Bedeutung liegt in diesem Leben spendenden Geheimnis? Wie wichtig ist das bewusste Atmen für echte spirituelle Transformation? Was sagt uns die Tatsache, dass unser Leben seine Möglichkeiten zwischen einem Einatmen und einem Ausatmen entfaltet? Wie hängt das alles mit dem Rhythmus des Universums und der Zeit zusammen? Welche Rolle spielt der Atem im »Werden des Seins« aus dem immerwährenden »Schoß des Augenblicks«? Wie können wir Nahrung einatmen und sie ins alchimistische Exilier destillieren, das wir für die nachhaltige Verwandlung unseres Lebens brauchen? Wie können wir ausatmen, um die Atmosphäre in einem Raum oder in einer Situation zu verändern, in Verantwortung für unsere Mitmenschen und für die »kommende Welt«? Was könnte es bedeuten, dass Jesus »auf dem Wasser wandelte« und dass »Atem und Geist eins sind«? Welches ist die esoterische Beziehung zwischen Maria, Jesus, dem Geist Gottes, Ruh Allah, und Christus?

Auf dem Hintergrund seines lebenslangen Studiums der großen spirituellen Traditionen der Menschheit und insbesondere der inneren Essenz der Sufi-Lehren liefert uns der Autor Gedankenanstöße und praktische Tipps zur Atemarbeit in unserem Alltag.
