International Association of Sufism
The International Association of Sufism (IAS), a California non-profit, humanitarian organization and a United Nations NGO/DPI, was founded in 1983 to create and provide a global forum for a continuing dialogue amongst Sufis, scholars, interfaith leaders, poets and artists from diverse cultures, nations and schools; to bring together Sufi principles and scientific understanding; and to promote equality and human rights.
Love and Wisdom classes with a Sufi Master will be held in Spring of 2017.
The March “Women’s Wisdom: Women in Action” lunch was very successful and we’ll have a report soon.
Women Gathering for Change: Envisioning ways to Create a Healthier Future Conference, was co-supported by IAS, and will be held in Egypt, 2016. We have a report on the conference here.
Dr. Nahid Angha’s podcast interview on Spirit Matters is currently featured at www.spiritmatterstalk.comhere.
