‘Spirituality of Islam’ talks planned
The Tacheria Interfaith Spirituality Center will present “Spirituality of Islam,” a workshop with Iman Jamal Rahman, Sufi Muslim minister, from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday at St. Philip’s in the Hills Episcopal Church (West Gallery), 4440 N. Campbell Ave.
Rahman’s passion is in interfaith community building, according to a news release from the spirituality center.
“He remains rooted in his Islamic tradition and cultivates a ‘spaciousness’ by being open to the beauty and wisdom of other faiths,” the news release says.
Since 9/11, Rahman has been collaborating with Rabbi Ted Falcon and the Rev. Don Mackenzie. Known as “the Interfaith Amigos,” they tour the country sharing the message of spiritual inclusivity.
Rahman is the author of several books, including “Spiritual Gems of Islam: Insights and Practices From the Qur’an, Hadith, Rumi and Muslim Teaching Stories to Enlighten the Heart and Mind” and “Getting to the Heart of Interfaith: The Eye-Opening, Hope-Filled Friendship of a Pastor, a Rabbi and a Sheikh.”
Admission to the workshop is $35, and participants are asked to bring their own lunch.
