Introduction I was born in Denver, Colorado, but I grew up in various locations in Maine. I went to high school in Mattawamkeag, Maine where there were eleven kids in my graduating class and 44 students in the high school as a whole. Somehow, I ended up going to Harvard University. I believe a mistake was made and the Harvard Medical school wanted me for experiments they were conducting, but, mysteriously, my name showed up on the desk of someone in admissions for the College instead. I majored in Social Relations, which is an interdisciplinary area of study combining psychology, sociology, and anthropology. I did graduate work in educational theory at the University of Toronto. Eventually, they let me leave with a doctorate. I became interested in mysticism around 1970. After spending a little time with a Gurdjieff group, I stepped onto the Sufi Path, and, in the process became a Muslim.
