In addition to lectures and workshops, the Sufism Symposium exhibits books, audio tapes, video tapes, Sufi publications, informational materials and art from Sufi Orders and international publishers.
Each symposium focuses on a particular theme to address the immediate and universal needs of humanity. This past year’s symposium theme was on Mind and Heart:
Each symposium is a historical event where speakers and participants from around the world are enraptured in camaraderie as their longing to unite with the Divine transcended cultural and philosophical barriers. A comprehensive report, audio tapes, and video tapes are available from each gathering.
