SUFI ORDER INTERNATIONAL, 1st & 3rd Wednesdays 8 pm
We study the Sufi teachings of Hazrat Inayat Khan, the first Sufi teacher who brought universal Sufism to the West in 1910. Studies may also include the teachings of Hazrat Pir Vilayat Inayat Khan, Pir Zia Inayat Khan, and Hazrat Murshid Samuel L. Lewis, as well as prayers, meditation, chanting practices, breathing exercises, poetry, singing, teachings of classical Sufis, and some discourse. Our universal approach to spirituality honors all religions and welcomes everyone. Please call to attend: 818/841-3246.
Although these classes are designed for those who are initiates in the lineage of Hazrat Inayat Khan, anyone may visit these classes after speaking with Murshida Tasnim.
IBN AL-'ARABI STUDY GROUP, 2nd & 4th Wednesdays 8 pm
The tremendous influence and impact of the 12th Century Sufi mystic and master, Muhyiddin Ibn al-‘Arabi, not only upon Islamic religious and philosophical thought but also upon 'western,' i.e. European thought, is indisputable.
We gather to read and investigate this precious legacy of the deepest wisdom in a congenial setting. Our study is facilitated by Tony Boyd. He is trained at the Beshara School in England and has studied the works of Ibn ‘Arabi for over 25 years. Both Tony and Tasnim are members of the Muhyiddin Ibn Arabi Society, (MIAS).
JELAUDDIN RUMI's TEACHINGS, 3rd Tuesday 8 pm
Mevlana Jelaluddin Rumi, who passed from this earth over 700 years ago on December 17, is now the 'most popular poet in America.' The Mevlevi Order is the Sufi order founded by Mevlana Rumi and the members of this order are called Mevlevi. The Mevlevis are known for the spiritual practice of “whirling” – Turning to God. The primary source of study for the followers of Mevlana Rumi is the Mathnawi. It is from the Mathnawi/Mesnevi that much of today's popularized poetry is taken.
We will read from the Mathnawi, share poetry, and participate in zikr/dhikr (which is a chanted Sufi practice of invoking divine phases). If there is
sufficient interest and commitment from those wishing to go deeper, we will begin classes in the Turn. Tasnim is a semazen (a Mevlevi dervish trained in the Turn) and a member of the Mevlevi Order of America headed by Postneshin Jelaluddin Loras, of Turkey.
