Breath and Fikr
Having taken prayer from full oral recitation, to the focused prayers of the each individual wazifa, to the all inclusive reality of the One and Only Being, now the direction of our practice is to internalize the prayer on the breath. This inner direction invites consideration of the breath itself as an indwelling Divine presence. Sufi teachings on this subject are studied in depth as well as practices for the development of intuition and insight. -Murshid Wali Ali Meyer
This program of study was offered monthly in San Rafael, CA in 2003, over a period of 11 months. Concurrently mureeds were able to study at a distance, utilizing a new technology at that time – downloading the study materials from the internet, or receiving them through the mail.
The materials have been divided into two series, allowing a student to study in a self-paced fashion. Many students take two months or more to work with each session. The materials have been used in local study circles adapted to meet the needs of the group. Finding a study partner or group can be extremely helpful.
Wali Ali is available by email for questions about the process and any experiences that arise.
