Gnostic Press: publishing the
works of Abdullah Dougan

Gnostic Press exclusively publishes the works of Shaikh Abdullah Isa Neil Dougan, who was born in New Zealand in 1918. Christianity claimed his attention from an early age; later he realised the urgency of finding a method of channelling energy into inner development. This led him first to the Gurdjieff movement and then to Sufism. He was initiated as a Naqshbandi Sufi in Afghanistan and in the subsequent nineteen years, until his death in 1987, continued to expand his teaching, adding to it from his own inner knowledge and emphasising the Gnostic basis of all true spiritual teachings.
