The Mysticism of Sound & Music
An Online Course w/ Pir Zia Inayat-Khan & Friends
Wednesdays, May 2-23, 2018, 7-8 pm EDT
Richmond, VA and Anytime Online
Continuing our study of The Sufi Message of Hazrat Inayat Khan: Centennial Edition, we come now to the first half of The Mysticism of Sound. The teachings contained in this volume represent the fruit of Sufi mystic Hazrat Inayat Khan’s (1882-1927) lifelong study of sound and music as a musician and philosopher whose geographical, artistic and spiritual peregrinations encompassed multiple continents, musical genres, and spiritual paradigms. Hazrat Inayat Khan’s teachings show how music is much more than an entertaining pastime. It is, in fact, the underlying code of the whole universe. Music is life, and Hazrat Inayat Khan’s subtle elucidations on the nature of sound and music open broad vistas of discovery in the pursuit of life’s inner meaning.
Pir Zia is our primary teacher for the Mysticism of Sound and Music and will be joined by special guest musicians and teachers throughout the series.
