All Kinds of Magic: One Man's Search for Meaning Across the Modern World by Piers Moore Ede




This is the story of a man who embarked on a quest that many of us have dreamed about. Disillusioned by a world hooked on material wealth and scientific fact, he decided to travel across the globe in search of something more meaningful: the magical, the mystical. His journey takes him from snow-blanketed villages in the Himalayas to tiny, covert communities of whirling dervishes in rural Turkey; from the world's largest religious festival on the banks of the swollen Ganges to a dappled, ancient Sufi quarter in Delhi. Lyrical and clear-sighted, "All Kinds of Magic" is a fascinating exploration of the hidden world of miracles that is at once deeply personal and universal in its scope.
