An opportunity to meet other local people interested in Sufism, All interested, whether just curious or knowledgeable of different paths welcomed and encouraged. Discussion generally centers around practical applications of sufism in today's world with selected topics and writings from various authors and teachers discussed at each meeting.

 

General Info:

All religions are but a path, the destination generally remains the same. The majority of recent religions which most of us share in common are revealed religions that required conversions. In theory no one was born a christian or a muslim -this or that, They accepted a religion and a prophet -ie thier path.
A sufi realizes that todays hindu can be tomorrows christian, that todays christian may be tomorrows muslim and vice versa. Until we can see the future or read peoples hearts we should treat all we encounter for what they can be - and realize they are just a fellow brother or sister following the path that is designed for them.

    "Perhaps it would be enlightenin­g to discuss the concept of spiritual entrainment­ - how to tap into a metronome that is collectivel­y felt within. Any thoughts you amazing protagonist­s of sufism without an order?"

I'm surprised by the level of growth I've seen since becoming an organizer, it's given me more confidence in my abilities.
