"The Thirteen Aspirations of Faith: Universal Tenets of the Emerging Cosmology"

Pir Netanel Mu'in ad-Din Miles-Yépez

In the 12th-century, the celebrated Jewish philosopher Maimonides formulated Thirteen Principles of Faith to advance the understanding of God and religion in his time. Over 800 years later, our own Rabbi Zalman Schachter-Shalomi began to feel a new formulation of these principles was necessary to guide us into the future. Thus, with his student, Netanel Miles-Yépez, he began to incorporate the mystical insights of Hasidism and Sufism into a new set of principles for the emerging cosmology. Pir Netanel will join us to explore the Thirteen Aspirations of Faith today.

Season of the Rose: Sufi Summer School 2015

Abode of the Message
New Lebanon, New York

Season of the Rose: Sufi Summer School 2015, featuring dialogue and teachings by Pir Zia Inayat-Khan, Taj Inayat, Himayat Inayati, Aziza Scott, Gayan Macher, Gulrukh Patel and Pir Netanel Miles-Yépez

In 1975 a new generation of spiritual seekers converged in the Sufi Order. In that year the Abode of the Message was established as a land-based Sufi community. Today, forty years on, the Sufi Order is growing anew. Our new impetus represents both a reaffirmation of our treasured roots in the visionary lifework of Hazrat Inayat Khan and a forward-looking response to the needs and aspirations of the rising generation of seekers in today’s complex, interconnected world. This summer we will come together for a Summer School of practice, dialogue, worship, and remembrance poised between our storied past and the beckoning future.
