Contemplation of the Holy Mysteries
October 6th – 7th, 2018
A residential weekend studying the ‘Contemplation of the Holy Mysteries’, one of the major works of Muhyiddin Ibn ‘Arabi. Facilitated by the co-translator Cecilia Twinch.
From the publisher’s website: “It consists of a series of 14 visions, in the form of dramatic conversations with the Divine, interspersed with dazzling visionary episodes… These contemplations are full of astounding insights into the nature of existence, our relationship with Reality, and the way to achieve true happiness.”
This course is an opportunity to study this work in beautiful surroundings, allowing for contemplative study without distractions. The Beshara Trust is very pleased that the co-translator Cecilia Twinch has agreed to facilitate the course, helped by Dee Mitting and Lucy Barratt.
