"Ifflepinn Island"—is an extraordinary lyrical fantasy for green-growing children and evergreen adults.
If you are hungry for a new magical tale in the classic genre of the “Narnia Chronicles” and “The Hobbit”, then “Ifflepinn Island” has come to your rescue!

One of many Five-Star Amazon Reviewers says:
   “Ifflepinn Island is gripping and delightful. It is an all embracing story that covers time, space, age and taste. There are passages resembling elements from C.S Lewis chronicles, and Tolkien and Tolstoy epic masterpieces."
   “It is a creation that becomes part of your life, which you want to hear more of, but do not want to end. A fantasy book for all ages, with many pointers for our daily perception on life. I recommend it to children and adults alike.” —Bobby Black

Iffleplum Copyright Muz Murray

 The hero, Iffleplum, is a lovable character who gets entrapped in the magical force-field of a faery-ring—where he is menaced by the Shadow-folk called “Gropes.” On losing the spirit of his heart in shock, he is whisked away on an unexpected and terrifying trip on a ghostly Ship of Light.

Thrust into other-worldly and mysterious realms, ever seeking the lost spirit of his heart, he encounters a Wizardly-Mage, Half-Elves and Human Hunters, Trolls and Ogres and is captured by goblin-like creatures called “Ghòrs”.

Can his lost friends, a timid vegetarian wolf and a Walking Mountain called the Gnumpf, help him to escape?  Will he ever recover the spirit of his heart and find his way back home to the world from which he came?
Aha! A tale of enchantment, with a twist or two in the tail!

Copyright Muz Murray

The story basically promotes the message to “always follow your heart.” But it covers many secrets and valuable insights on life and death to stimulate a child’s imagination and compassion.

 Says another reviewer:
   “Ifflepinn Island is one of the best books I've ever had the pleasure to read and own. I cannot put into words what an exciting and exhilarating story this is. The whole thing is unique from start to finish, you will not be disappointed. I find it hard to believe that this amazing work hasn't yet been made into an epic film although I'm sure it will be given time, as it’s that good. I would recommend you read this book whether you are an adult or not, matters not as it will enthral you all. This really is a must have book. Get it while you can.” Thomas Field

Says the Author:
      My publishers consider this book has the enduring and timeless quality of “The Wizard of Oz.”  One reviewer likened it to “Moomintroll meets the Hobbit, somewhere way beyond the far side of Narnia.”  So that may give you some idea of the genre. But it is not like any of them. I guarantee you have never read anything like it before. 

Asked what he wants to do with this book, he replied: 
    “I want to stimulate the imagination of children with a magical sense of existence, while seeding their consciousness with life-enhancing secrets and positive attitudes. These are easily absorbed in the middle of the adventures of the hero, Iffleplum.”

Author Bio:
   I started out as a surrealist painter, then a writer, actor and theatrical and film designer during seven years of vagabondage around the word. I hitch-hiked down the length of Africa, spent 3 years as a wandering monk in India; became founder-editor of Gandalf’s Garden magazine and Community and co-founder of The Open Centre for spiritualized psychotherapy in London. For the last 50 years I have quietly travelled the world as a spiritual mentor and Mantra Master, teaching Mantra and Advaita Vedanta workshops in many countries.

   Because of my many years of adventures on dangerous roads—sleeping under the bridges with tramps in Paris, working as an elephant-trainer, Night-club singer and a rock-driller in King Solomon’s mines in the Israeli desert; being shot at by bandits, surviving knife attacks, hold-ups, poisoned darts and earthquakes while trekking down Africa, crossing deserts, living with the Dervishes in Turkey and Iran, and clinging to the outside of an express train for 10 hours through the night in India—the Mind-Body-Spirit  journals have called me ‘the Indiana Jones of Yoga.’
So you can be sure that Ifflepinn Island will be just as remarkably adventurous!

Others see me as Gandalf or Dumbledore!

Surya Dhyana - A Guided Visualisation on the Inner Sun

Surya (Solar) Yoga is an ancient practical method of focalising consciousness (dhyana) at the spiritual heart centre, awakening loving warmth in spirit and giving the lustre of light to your eyes to which even strangers respond. While visualising an Inner Sun in the centre of your being, coupled with the natural flow of your breath, loving radiations pour out your soul’s warmth to all creation, while protecting you from absorbing any negative energies from your environment and attuning you to a feeling Oneness with the world.

“Muz Murray has pursued the way of the mystic with tremendous rigour and determination.”

Colin Wilson (Philosopher)

“Maestro Muz Murray is in my opinion one of the few genuine Western teachers in the world today. When he chants, these are not ordinary sounds we hear, but magical cadences, charged with subtle spiritual energies from the depths of a fully attuned being. His presence creates an atmosphere such as I have not found even in India. His voice and his eyes emanate something in the nature of disksha—spiritual transmission, and one feels purified in soul for long after a session.”

Prof. Johannes Felbermeyer (Indologist)
University of Rome

“Mantra has the blossoming of the heart as its central experience.”

Muz Murray (Ramana Baba)
