Our Guest: Kabir Helminski
ABOUT THE AUTHOR
Kabir Helminski has been recognized as one of the most skilled and authentic translators of Rumi, and he is a spiritual teacher (shaikh) recognized by Rumi’s tradition, the Mevlevi Order. While he has been named one of the "500 Most Influential Muslims in The World," he considers his most important contribution to be expressing the universal and practical aspects of spiritual development. Kabir is also a spiritual activist regularly writing for the Huffington Post, the Times of India, Patheos.com, and Tikkun. His books have been translated into at least nine languages.
In Sufism, the mystical branch of Islam, presence is the quality that describes a heart-filled state of mindfulness, an experience of being conscious in the present moment. It is only in this present moment, Sufi teachings reveal, that we can connect with the Divine, and the Divine can live through us.
In Living Presence, Shaikh Kabir lays out the basic principles of Sufism, and how these ideas can lead to the experience of presence. In this inspiring work, readers will learn how to cultivate presence in their lives through:
* Finding a balance between the outer stimuli of the world and our inner reactions to them
* Harnessing faithfulness and gracefulness
* Learning about the parallels between ancient spiritual wisdom and modern psychological knowledge
* Meditation and contemplation to discover more meaning in daily life
With unique clarity, this book describes how presence can be developed to vastly improve our lives. https://sufism.org.
