Islamic Meditation and Mindfulness
with Ihsan Alexander
February 3 – March 17, 2019
Meditation and mindfulness are often associated with several eastern traditions such as Buddhism and Yoga, yet few know the essential position of meditative spiritual practice within Islam. In this seven week course, we will learn about the fundamental importance of meditation and mindfulness within the Islamic context, as well as work together in establishing a practice that is rich, rewarding and rooted in the Prophetic model. Topics to be covered will include the development of presence (khushoo), as well as the practices of observation (muraqaba), remembrance (dhikr) and transcendence (fana). We will also explore the fundamental differences between meditative spiritual practice in Islam in contrast with other paths, and ultimately discover how this approach to faith can not only reduce stress, fear and anxiety, but also help us to create a real and profound relationship and connection with our Creator.
