What is this class about?
Introduction to Sufi Thought is an interesting class where we will contemplate some of the 99 names of Allah; we will read some very funny but spiritually meaningful Sufi stories about the great fictional wise-fool, Mullah. We will also look at poetry by great Sufi mystics including Rumi, Kabir, Rabia, Abu Hamid Al-Ghazali, Attar and more. This is a wonderful opportunity to look at the heart of the Qu’ran through the eyes of those who have seen it clearest.
When & where does this class meet?
This class is facilitated by Regina Dawn Akers. It meets on Wednesday nights, from 7-9pm Pacific Time on the following dates: April 1, 8, 15, 29, May 6. Each class is two hours long. It is an interactive class that meets in a private room in PalTalk, so knowledge of how to use PalTalk is extremely helpful.
The class is 5 weeks long. There is no class on April 22 due to Regina’s travels.
How much does it cost?
The registration fee is $100.
What is the homework commitment?
Since the purpose of all Awakening Together classes is to help participants become Self-reliant with inner spiritual wisdom, participants will contemplate class material before coming to class. In class, participants share their experience with the contemplation and the facilitator sheds additional light on the material contemplated. Therefore, homework begins on March 26, one week before the first class meeting. There is homework 6 days per week throughout the 5-week class. It takes about 30 minutes per day to complete the daily devotional homework.
What book do I need to buy?
In addition to the workbook provided by Awakening Together when you register, a textbook is required. The participants must purchase the textbook from a book seller such as Amazon. The Textbook needed is The Sufi Book of Life by Neil Douglas-Klotz.
**When you order from smile.amazon.com and designate Awakening Together as your charity of choice, a portion of the money you pay is donated back to Awakening Together at no cost to you!
How do I register?
Registration for Introduction to Sufi Thought is open through March 24.
