5:30 - 7 pm | MONDAY, NOVEMBER 11
Join host John Lorenz Monday nights at the Peregrine to contemplate the truth or "Dharma." This month, we will discuss The Inner Life by Hazrot Inayat Khan.
About the Book
The Indian Sufi master Hazrat Inayat Khan (1882–1927) was the first teacher to bring Sufism—Islamic mysticism—to the Western world. His teaching was noted for its stirring beauty and power, as well as for its applicability to all people, regardless of religious or philosophical background. This book gathers together three of Inayat Khan's most beloved essays on the spiritual life from among the fourteen volumes of his collected works: "The Inner Life": Inayat Kahn's sublime portrait of the person whose life is a radiant reflection of the Divine; "Sufi Mysticism": in which the author identifies and shatters the common misconceptions about mysticism to reveal its true meaning; and "The Path of Initiation and Discipleship": What it means to set out on the spiritual path and how to find and maintain the right relationship with a teacher. Also included is a short lecture (previously unpublished), "The Path of the Mystic," and a small collection of aphorisms. Readers unfamiliar with Sufism will find this an excellent, accessible introduction. Those who are familiar with Sufism will appreciate the collection of the material into one volume.
On Sunday 11/17 from 1-3pm, please also join us for a sack lunch picnic in the gorgeous Sonoran desert. We will meet at Cave Creek Regional Park for talks by Navajo and Hopi Elders. Call John Lorenz at (928) 445-5179 for more info and directions.
