Join the Desert Foundation’s Tessa Bielecki and Pastor LuTimothy May in dialogue with Pir Zia Inayat-Khan to explore the connections between Christian spirituality and the universalist Sufi path of Hazrat Inayat Khan. “Wisdom of the Prophets–Sufism and Christianity” takes place November 2-5 in Richmond, Virginia. Tessa will introduce the foundations and rhythms of the Christian contemplative life, celebratory ritual, and the joys of an “earthy mysticism.” Pastor May will explore the Christian tradition of finding hope and joy through spiritual music and the example of Jesus Christ. All will take place in dialogue with Pir Zia, who will teach from his new book Mingled Waters: Sufism & the Mystical Unity of Religions.
Christianity, according to Hazrat Inayat Khan, is “pure mysticism, a mysticism of love: to judge no one, to forgive
everyone . . . to come to that knowledge which instead of making you clever makes you innocent.”
