Sufi Journal - CFP
Call for Papers

Sufi is devoted to the study of mysticism in all its aspects-literature, history, poetry, philosophy, and practice-irrespective of religious denomination.

For over twenty years Sufi has provided a forum for scholars and practitioners of mysticism from a variety of religious/spiritual traditions, to share their knowledge and experiences. The journal not only seeks to connect the study of mysticism with its practice, but also to address both the study and practice of mysticism within the context of the contemporary world.  
The editors of Sufi invite submissions of articles, stories, poetry, personal essays, and artistic works, on all topics relating to mysticism. Starting with Spring/Summer 2011 issue, Sufi will also publish a series of thematic issues focusing on concepts such as Mystical Love, Ethics, Gender, and Ego in relation to mystical paths and experiences. For a sampling of published works in Sufi please go to <>

Spring/Summer 2011 issue, Mystical Love

In Sufism the highest form of love is a love without expectation or reward, a love that focuses its intensity on the divine Beloved alone, burning away or “annihilating” all traces of ego-self existence until only the Beloved remains.  

For centuries, similar expressions of love have resided at the core of other mystical traditions. From Rumi to St. Theresa of Avila; from Rabbi Moshe Lieb of Sasov to the Bhagavad Gita; from Jesus to Bahá'u'lláh, divine love is understood as an essential experience or phenomenon for psychological/ spiritual transformation and the illumination of Reality.

The Spring/Summer 2011 issue of Sufi Journal seeks submissions concerning all aspects of mystical love— language, gender, psychology, history, experience and meaning. The editors are especially interested in contemporary discussions and theories that offer fresh perspectives on this subject. Scholars and graduate students in all disciplines interested in the subject of mystical love are invited to submit. All disciplinary and inter-disciplinary methodologies are welcomed.

Academic articles should not exceed 6,000 words. A short biography should be enclosed with the submission. Please send submissions to
