THE ESOTERIC SCHOOL
The Esoteric School of the Sufi Ruhaniat International offers a series of pre-recorded classes in Sufi mysticism for Mureeds, first presented by Murshid Wali Ali Meyer. Registration for each Series includes access to the class recordings and textual materials, and email correspondence with Murshid Wali Ali for questions and guidance. As a result of the format, the classes are easily adaptable to one's own pace of study, practice and learning:
"This is the path that we are on. If it takes us longer, so be it - it's still a wonderful, wonderful path to be on...I don't want people to feel pressure from the pace that we're setting up in terms of this process, because for some of us this pace may be too slow and for others it may be way too fast. And consequently, what I want people to do is stay with your practice and with the blessing that's in it with whatever degree that you can bring to it, and let it warm up; let it warm up your being." -- Murshid Wali AliGeneral Overview and Registration Information (pdf)
