Saturday, February 15, 2014 | LIFE AS STORY: Sohbet, Sharing, and Spiritual Communication | Lecture by James Morris

The framework for this discussion is beautifully summarized in the early Qur’anic sura of the “Morning Light” (Duha, 93:1-11).  How do we overcome the natural dualistic impression of life as an arbitrary series of “good” and “bad” events?   And how can we communicate to others our dawning recognition of the larger context or direction of that process?  Finally, what are the distinctive conditions for effective spiritual communication of this realization?  The exploration of these foundational questions highlights and helps to illuminate the central role of stories and storytelling throughout the Sufi tradition (and its many spiritual counterparts).
