Kahlil Gibran released his universally acclaimed masterpiece, The Prophet, in 1923. Since then this incredible book has been renowned for its profound answers to life's deepest questions. Now, several generations later, Kahlil's great-cousin Hajjar Gibran has written the long-awaited answer to his ancestor's promise. The Return of the Prophet, based on Hajjar's real-life experiences, is a moving collection of inspiring words spoken to Hajjar by Kahlil in a series of visions. Hajjar's life experiences and Kahlil's wise advice and prophetic statements that are applicable to everyone are woven masterfully and told beautifully. The Return of the Prophet is written in the same style as The Prophet, yet contains a modern understanding of spirituality and faith that can be applied to all religions. Like The Prophet with its universal themes and timeless advice, The Return of the Prophet is another true insight into life's deepest meanings.
After his brother's tragic death, Hajjar Gibran lived through a tormenting passage that culminated in a series of visionary episodes and visitations from his ancestral spirit, Khalil Gibran. Hajjar's spiritual calling inspired him on an unconventional lifelong odyssey that included building a spiritual retreat center with many years of consciousness research and a private practice specializing in therapies that help aid in spiritual growth and development. He later synthesized his work with the ancient practice of Hawaiian shamanism. In keeping with his ancestral lineage, Hajjar's teachings offer insights on timeless issues that bridge the wisdom of ancient mysticism with the practical issues of contemporary society.
