Resources for Students

Hi! If you found your way here it’s because you asked for instruction from me.

If you paid for a “tier,” thank you for your payment. Your transaction has been completed, and a receipt for your purchase has been emailed to you.

We should talk very soon about how I can best-serve you.

Here are some resources that will greatly-benefit your practice and which I consider central to the esoteric work. Clicking/tapping the link will download them. Refer to them periodically in the course of your studies; I only ask that you not share them without my permission.

First-and-foremost, however, is the Purification Breaths. If you do no other practice in the day, do this — even if it’s before your feet hit the floor in the morning. Precede it with the Invocation, at the top of the document of Inayat Khan’s prayers.
The Purification Breaths

Qāsab is a more-advanced breath practice. Do the Purification Breaths daily for at least three months before adding Qāsab to your daily routine.

For some people, Inayat Khan’s prayers are intensely alive, and for others, not — and that’s OK. If you wish, there are prescribed times-of-day for them; consult with me for the sequence.

The teachings on Impression are some of the most esoteric and essential of all the Sufi teachings, and a great deal of the work we do is to clear impressions (the Sanskrit term is samskara) from our being and felt-identity — because therein resides true spiritual liberty.
Teachings on Impression

The Gatha discourses are the foundational orientation to this path, and there are actually some very advanced and nuanced teachings in them.

(These are a subset of Inayat Khan’s addresses to his initiates, and comprise about a fifth of them, the rest being unpublished and privately-distributed based on “grade” in the esoteric school.)
