Over het evenement

Transdisciplinary artist and researcher Safa Mirror leads an enlightening exploration into the profound mystical Sufi Path towards Divine unity, as eloquently articulated in the poetry of Rumi.

The lecture intricately unfolds the three stages – Sharīʿah, Tarīqah, and Haqīqah – constituting the spiritual odyssey of the Salīk or Wayfarer. Sharīʿah signifies adherence to Islamic law, providing the essential foundation, while Tarīqah unfolds as the inner path of purification and spiritual discipline. Haqīqah marks the culmination, where the seeker experiences the ultimate truth, achieving union with the Divine.

Safa introduces an intriguing dimension by highlighting Rumi's use of Alchemy as an allegory for the mystical stages of the Sufi journey. This parallels the use of Alchemical symbolism in the Rosicrucian text "Chemical Wedding," serving as a framework to illuminate fundamental tenets of Rosicrucian philosophy. The shared symbolism between Rumi and Rosicrucians underscores universal themes in spiritual exploration, encapsulating the profound journey toward transformation and divine oneness.

As a translator of Persian poetry and Hermetic philosophy, Safa skilfully weaves together the mysticism of Rumi and the spiritual essence of Rosicrucians, finding resonance in the profound tapestry of Alchemy.
