Andrew Harvey has stated that of all the great traditions he has explored, he feels most closely attuned to the Sufi Way. In this free presentation, he offers a succinct and exciting presentation on the basic nature of Sufism. This presentation is followed by a free recording. It is, I believe, not too late to receive a copy of this and certainly not too late to enroll in his upcoming webinar on the Sufi path. I have enrolled for I always learn more from this master teacher. Total cost is $327 for 7 sessions.
Could the teachings of the Sufi mystics hold the key to ecstatic surrender into true love?
There’s a reason why Rumi, one of the most important Sufi mystics, is the most beloved poet in America. It comes down to one word: love.
Andrew Harvey, mystic, scholar, founder of the Institute of Sacred Activism, deeply believes that the “Sufi Way of the Beloved” holds the key to an ecstatic experience of love… and just may hold the key to creating true and lasting peace in the world.
I know Andrew well. He is an astoundingly erudite and spiritually transmissive poet and activist. He has appeared on my teleseminar series Beyond Awakening multiple times. Last year, we co-led a transformative rite of passage — Radiant Embodiment: An Initiatory Journey.
On Wednesday, June 15, he will deliver you into the heart of Sufism to receive the blessing — and experience the initiatory power — of this ancient sacred lineage on a free teleseminar called, Discovering the Sufi Way of the Beloved: Ecstasy & Surender Through the Mystical Teachings of Islam.
You can claim your free seat here.
If you’ve ever been curious about the noble and tender power of the Sufi path, Andrew Harvey is an ideal guide who can bring it vividly to life. He’s not only a scholar of many major faiths, he’s been a long-time student and translator of Rumi and an initiate into Sufi lineages.
In this free event, you’ll:
Celebrate the Sufi quest for a more universal understanding that embraces all paths
Develop a mystical appreciation for how Sufis understand the Prophet Mohammed, beyond modern history’s propaganda
Learn about the Sufi “mysticism of the heart”
Discover the centrality of the divine feminine in Sufism
See how integrating divine intelligence into how we design society can unite us through common spiritual ideals and the guiding principles for a peaceful world
There is a sweetness and embodied humility in Sufism that is profoundly moving and valuable, and Andrew Harvey can communicate it eloquently and powerfully.
It’s free to attend and you will receive a recording if you can’t listen live. You can register here.
Andrew will also share about his upcoming course The Sufi Way of the Beloved: Opening to Ecstasy, Fearlessness & Compassion Through the Wisdom of 7 Great Mystics.
To our evolution,
P.S. During Discovering the Sufi Way of the Beloved Andrew will help you open to the sublime love at the core of the Sufi path and discover teachings and practices that can liberate your soul through a profoundly intimate relationship with the Divine. It’s free to attend and you’ll be sent a recording too. You can register here.
