‘Spiritual Unfoldment Through The Sufi Path’  Part II: ‘Developing an Understanding of the Foundations’ – 17 May to 21 June 2013

Continuing from “Beginning The Spiritual Unfoldment Through The Sufi Path”, this upcoming course will be delving deeper into the knowledge and understanding of the foundations of the Sufi path.

Sufism is the path of knowing God and journeying to God, where the purpose of the creation of life in general, and the creation of human beings in particular, is realised and therefore lived. It is about the struggle of overcoming the false ego/self (nafs), in order to reach the essential self which is the reflection of the Divine Reality.

The Sufi path rests securely upon Divine Revelation and the teaching and guidance of the Prophet (pbuh), in which the traveller is taught to know his/her self in order to know his/her Lord as they are gradually purified of their attachment to their personal ego/self attributes.

In this six week course we will be exploring fundamental issues such as:

  • How to live according to the real purpose of life
  • How to discover hidden aspects of the self (nafs)
  • Addressing three of the major obstacles: doubt, resistance and defence mechanisms
  • Exploring spirituality versus materiality
  • Exploring the central role of trust (tavakol) in spiritual unfoldment
