This book serves as a practical guide for spiritual seekers of any faith, or none, who wish to live life with the awareness and intentionality that arises from perennial wisdom and insight.
We are invited to access the treasure chest of Islamic spirituality, particularly Sufism, to use its wealth to strengthen, nurture, and nourish our own spiritual life. Regardless of where you are on your spiritual journey, the book offers gems that are worthy additions to your own treasure chest within.
There is no charge for the discussions (free will offerings accepted), but you will need to purchase a copy of Imam Rahman’s book. After you register, you will receive information on how to make that purchase. If you cannot afford or need help purchasing the book, please contact the Renewal Center (email@example.com).
