Short book. Can be read in a day, but I read it in two. Chasing Rumi is similar to The Alchemist in that a young man gets wanderlust in the realm of spiritual truths. Although the story had already been played (I prefer Coelho's Alchemist), Housden snuck in a rather interesting Sufi technique: Drawing one's attention to the heart through the breath/5(25).

out of 5 stars Chasing Rumi.
