MIAS education: Intensive Introductory Course


Meeting Ibn Arabi: His Life and Teaching



MIAS Education Team is offering this course as a guided group exploration into Ibn Arabi´s life and teachings, based on the book from Claude Addas, The Voyage of No Return. The course is open to all and is designed especially for those who are less familiar with Ibn Arabi. You might be considering joining one of our Voyage courses and would like to ‘meet’ Ibn Arabi as a preparation. We also welcome those who are already acquainted with the work of Ibn Arabi and who wish to know more about his life and the context within which he lived, travelled, and wrote.

Content and Method

The book consists of twelve chapters that are fairly short. Participants will be required to read the material before the session and to note any questions they have. During the sessions we will discuss any questions and clarify concepts and terminology. Additional excerpts from other works may enrich our understanding during the sessions. We invite you to share any inspiration or thoughts about the text. This course is not composed of lectures and it is not an academic study. Rather, it is an interactive group discussion and a personal engagement with Ibn Arabi. We hope that it thereby serves as a small taster for the Voyage courses.

The course will consist of one session on Saturday morning and the same on Sunday. Each session will last 3.5 hours, with a 30 minute break, giving a total of six hours. The book can be bought here:
