Understanding the Qur’an is offered for persons of all spiritual backgrounds and traditions who are seeking to learn more about themselves, the true but hidden messages of the Qur’an, and to more deeply understand the knowledgeable way toward universal understanding of the Divine.

Participants will leave the class with:

  • A deeper understanding of their own Self;
  • How the mysticism of religion is available for Self-knowledge through the flame of Love burning in the hearth of Wisdom;
  • How the Qur’an is not a book for external imitation but more fully a mirror in which to understand the hidden language and rhythm that is the book of your own Self in the point of Unity (universal harmony, etc.)

These classes, taught by a knowledgeable and wise Sufi Master, will prove to be a valuable resource to persons of all religious and spiritual faiths and traditions. They will deepen and enrich your own personal spiritual practice, whatever your faith or spiritual tradition, and have been attended by: people in rabbinical training, people in Christian ministry, Buddhist scholars, scholars of indigenous American traditions, psychologists, medical physicians, philosophy students, university professors, community activists, poets, masters of martial arts, and classroom teachers.
