Sufism for Western Seekers Secures Fourth Place, Receives Honorable Mention


Stroudsburg, PAJune 24, 2012, Dr. Stewart Bitkoff’s book Sufism for Western Seekers, which was nominated by ForeWord Magazine’s 2011 Adult Non Fiction Religious Book of the Year, was just awarded fourth place receiving honorable mention in the overall competition. Bitkoff has proven his ability to offer Americans an ancient teaching which has otherwise been viewed as seemingly complicated and places this book on the shelf of “must reads” alongside new age, self-help literature such as Dr. Wayne Dyer.

Sufism for Western Seekers depicts a first-hand account of spiritual growth in two modern Sufi mystical schools. Sufism is the ancient path of spiritual knowing and is available through all religions, independent of Islam and other orders, yet is often misunderstood by Americans and Western Seekers. It is the true path to "knowing” oneself and coming to understand the light. It is not meant to replace religion rather it’s an added essence the ‘holly on the tree.’

Bitkoff is an avid student of Sufi Mysticism and the perennial philosophy. Professionally, specializing in the healing applications of therapeutic recreation, psychiatric rehabilitation and mental health treatment, he holds a doctorate in education and served as a faculty member for six colleges and universities. Bitkoff is the author of several additional titles including The Ferryman’s Dream, A Commuter’s Guide to Enlightenment and Journey of Light Trilogy. He grew up in New York City and spent most of his professional career living and working in the New York City area. For more information or to purchase books you can visit www.stewartbitkoff.com .
