The Way of Passion draws on the poems of Jalalud-Din Rumi (1207 - 1273) to present a guide to the timeless truth and beauty of Rumi's words. Each chapter, Harvey tells us, is "a dance, a dance of mirrors, in which essential spiritual themes return to be reflected in different constellations and harmonies, a dance around Rumi and that mystery of love he lived and expressed so completely".

Inspired by Rumi's voice and by his own startling ability to see into the innermost heart of life, Harvey urges us to change, to have faith, and to act through love to transform this time of apocalypse into the time of resurrection. The passion of his words shine with an intensity that can embrace and inspire us all.

Features musical accompaniment created and performed on ney and bendir by Steve Coughlin.
