Sufi Aikido!

We welcome  the return of Terence Ward, part two, in conversing manner, whose splendid book, The Wahhabi Code, is the anti-dote… to the toxic tyranny of Wahhabism, and the liberating Medicine of Sufism..

Terence Ward grew up in Saudi Arabia, Iran, and Egypt, then on to Berkeley, cross-cultural consultant, and pollinating agent, that we may feel our kinship with the beauty of Islam…
as Terence writes, “Few Westerners know that for 1,000 years up until 1924, Mecca was a center for Sufi ecstatic prayer, dance, music tolerant honoring of the Divine in all beings…”
Anything that’s anywhere is everywhere…tyranny and its beautiful anti-dote…

    Hi Caroline,

    Thank you so much for this series. I searched for more, found an earlier book – Searching for Hassan. If there is a documentary also, I cannot find evidence of it. I did locate a great panel discussion from ca. 2005, at Mass. School of Law. In case you have not seen it:
    Iran- Understanding Iran and the Iranian People
    Wishing you well,
