Exploring the Mystery
An old Gnostic bishop once told me that if I wanted to study the ancient ways of the mystery schools, I might want to forget about Gnosticism, that most of those lineages were killed off and much of the wisdom had been lost in history. "If you truly want to experience a mystery school today, check out the Sufis."
The Abode of the Message is hosting an introductory weekend for their esoteric Sufi studies at the Suluk Academy if anyone is interested in checking out their heart-opening, mystical program.
Introduction to Suluk Academy - March 26th-29th at the Abode of the Message
The Suluk Academy is a school of esoteric Sufi studies founded by Pir Zia Inayat-Khan in 2002. The Academy's guiding vision derives from the spiritual legacy of Hazrat Inayat Khan (1882-1927), the mystical philosopher and musician who gave definitive modern expression to the timeless and universal wisdom of Sufism. The Suluk Academy offers spiritual training programs based upon the teachings of the Sufi Order International (SOI). The Academy provides an opportunity to participate in a focused study of the essential perspectives and spiritual practices of the SOI's esoteric school, emphasizing the soul's natural unfoldment in life through the cultivation of balance and integration.
This month we are offering a special opportunity to learn more about the SOI and Suluk Academy, through our introductory weekend titled "Exploring the Journey." This is also an excellent chance to visit our beautiful retreat center and residential community, the Abode of the Message. If you are interested in finding out more about what we do, please join us for this 3-day event held at the Abode of the Message on March 26th-29th, led by Pir Zia Inayat-Khan and other senior Sufi Order teachers. No previous experience with Suluk Academy or the Sufi Order is required to participate in this event, and no further commitment is requested. I hope you will consider joining us for this program.
Tuition is $260 - some scholarships are available.
