Adventures in Subud

by Harris Smart

At the time of the Freiburg Congress I released a new book about Subud called ADVENTURES IN SUBUD. “A book that will open doors to enquirers about Subud and is a major contribution to our knowledge about Subud and its positive impact in the world. A comprehensive panoramic view of people and their spirituality written by a seasoned journalist.”  — Valentine Navey The book presents an overview of the development of Subud covering practically every aspect of Subud life including spiritual experiences, enterprises, welfare projects, cultural projects, health and healing and youth. It is 360 pages long with 120 illustrations including photographs and also cartoons by Marcus Bolt and Dirk Campbell. It shows Subud as a dynamic movement combining spirituality and action in the world.

Comments by readers

“This is a feast of a book, rich in history, explanation and vintage anecdote, woven together through the steadfast voice of Harris Smart, long term editor of Subud Voice.” “This is a masterful and at times heart-wrenching record of our Subud experience over recent decades: replete with it hope and disappointment, revelation and joy – leavened with the marvellously irreverent cartoons of Marcus Bolt and Dirk Campbell.” “This is the story of my community, a very precious part of my life.” — Dr Livingston Armytage “A varied and colourful collection of lived adventures that well reflect the diversity of human nature.” — Leonard Lassalle “Harris Smart’s latest (and finest) book … It aims at providing a ‘one-stop shop’ for enquirers with coverage of all aspects of Subud.” — Hussein Rawlings “I would like to recommend ‘Adventures in Subud’ to anyone on, or about to start, a spiritual path. As a spiritual path, by its very nature, is very difficult to describe I recommend that you open the book at random and read what is there. If it resonates then go on.” — Edward Mackenzie
