Notice: This event is not booking at the moment (see below).
This talk will explore the problematic and intriguing concept of humility from a Sufi perspective, using poetry, teaching stories – often amusing – chants and meditative practice. It will examine psychological and spiritual dimensions, based in the illuminating teachings of Sufi scholars and poets. The aim will be to demonstrate the depth and relevance of this rich and longstanding, but relatively unknown, Middle Eastern tradition to the familiar joys and struggles of contemporary seekers after meaning in the West.
Tickets available on the door: FREE for Guild members, £15 for non-members, £9.00 concessions
