Share International - hope and despair: antidotes to despair

J. Jaye Gold

J. Jaye Gold, in his younger years, studied at a 500-year-old experimental Naqshbandi Sufi school in northeastern Afghanistan. Believing that the methods he learned in this school needed to be modified for people in affluent Western cultures, he took on this challenge and developed tools, dynamics, and explorations of consciousness to help lead Westerners toward “intimacy with the ultimate reality, in order to become true servants.” For the last 30 years, Gold has guided spiritual seekers in Northern California, using the “school of life” as his classroom. He has authored four published books: Another Heart in his Hand, Highway of Diamonds,The Roca Group, and the latest, Justin Time (Peradam Press). Visit
