Llewellyn Vaughan-Lee

Llewellyn Vaughan­-Lee, PhD, is a Sufi teacher and author. Born in London in 1953, he has followed the Naqshbandi Sufi path since he was nineteen. He has written a series of books giving a detailed exploration of the stages of spiritual and psychological transformation experienced on the Sufi path, with a particular focus on the use of dreamwork as inner guidance on the journey. Since 2000, the focus of his writing and teaching has been on the awakening global consciousness of oneness, and spiritual ecology, the need for a spiritual response to our present ecological crisis. He also has been featured in the TV series Global Spirit and was interviewed by Oprah Winfrey as a part of her Super Soul Sunday series. His most recent book is Including the Earth in our Prayers.

The future will not be as we have planned—our world is already too far out of balance. But this may be our most important gift to future generations—a belief in living Oneness.

[Greta Thunberg’s words] brought tears to my eyes, as my soul heard her speak about real care for the Earth—for this living, beautiful being who has given us life, who has nourished us with Her endless generosity, even as we have abused and desecrated Her, raped and pillaged Her body, which our culture regards greedily as just a “resource” for our endless use and abuse.

Unity and the Power of Love


Oneness is not a metaphysical idea but something essential and ordinary. It is in every breath, in the wing-beat of every butterfly, in every piece of garbage left in on city streets.
