What would it mean to think, speak, and act from the heart?

How would such a reorientation affect one’s way of life, relationships, emotions, and identity itself? Through conscious breath, sacred sound and movement, prayer, and meditation, the transformational implications of focalizing consciousness in the heart will be explored.

Pir Zia is a scholar and teacher of Sufism in the lineage of his grandfather, Hazrat Inayat Khan. He is the president and spiritual leader of the Sufi Order International and founder of Seven Pillars House of Wisdom. He established the Suluk Academy, a school of contemplative study with branches in the United States and Europe. Pir Zia holds a doctoral degree in Religion from Duke University, is a recipient of the U Thant Peace award, and is a Lindisfarne Fellow. His anthology A Pearl in Wine was published in 2001.

Also with Pir Zia:

Ethics as a Nexus between Islam and the West

A Talk by Pir Zia Inayat-Khan

Followed by dialogue with Pir Zia Inayat-Khan
and Tenzin Priyadarshi of the Dalai Lama Center for Ethics and Transformative Values

Friday, November 30th, 7 PM

Stata Center Auditorium ( 32-123 ), Massachusetts Institute of Technology

Whereas religious systems differ markedly in their theological views and ritual practices, the world’s religions and enlightened philosophical traditions find themselves in perfect accord on the essential importance of ethical integrity. At a time when the Islamic world and the West seem locked in an interminable symbolic conflict fraught with global peril, the ethical values that unite Islam and the West are a timely topic for exploration and celebration.

All are welcome to attend this free event.

Sponsored by the Dalai Lama Center for Ethics and Transformative Values.
