The School of Love

An Evening With Pir Zia Inayat-Khan

Friday, November 6, 2009, 7:30 p.m.
Albuquerque, New Mexico

The essence of Sufism is the creed of the heart, or the "School of Love"  ( mazhab-i 'ishq).  The cornerstone of this school is the insight that the Universe is a phenomenon of love, the ripest fruit of which is the human heart.  In this talk, Pir Zia will explore the individual and collective implications of the spiritual cultivation of the heart.


Spiritual Chivalry: Answering the Call

Friday, December 4, 2009, 7-9 p.m.
Washington, D.C.

Beyond our occupation, each of us has a vocation, a calling toward sacred service.  This calling may be understood as our life’s purpose, our personal contribution to the transformation of the world.  Spiritual chivalry is the cultivation of our capacity to answer the call.  It is to swear oneself body, heart, and soul to the ideals of truth, justice, peace, and beauty—and thus sworn, to go forth into the battle of life.
