The Quest for Truth by Sheikh Aly N’Daw
The Quest for Truth is a journey of self-awareness and self-discovery. Sheikh Aly N’Daw, invites us to develop a profound understanding of our inherent Being and the factors that can interfere with our original nature. True understanding can only come from the heart. It is only through the profound dimension of the heart that the Being can understand the world of illusion that permeates all aspects of human life. This dimension of understanding is the starting point of the awakening process.
According to the author, there is no need to retreat to the mountains to be awakened! We only need to be fully aware of the nature of illusion, in order to come out of it and start living in an awakened state. As the Being awakens, it develops the audacity to live fully in the present moment and surpass any perceived insecurity, challenges or perils. The Being is then able to attain the divine state of selflessness and experience Truth as a profound inner reality, as did many peacemakers who have proposed viable alternative social and economic models which respect human dignity and promote true human development.
The Awakening of Consciousness by Sheikh Aly N’Daw
Are we living our true human potential and our real life purpose? How can we go deep within and be the best that we can be? How can we play a conscious part in the advent of an alternative social order which furthers true human development and conscious living? Through this short series of talks, Sheikh Aly N’Daw invites us to experience the path of self-discovery and reflection about who we truly are. He encourages us to meditate deeply on how we perceive ourselves, how we think, feel and interact with other fellow human beings. His profound and powerful words help us to understand how our character, which we can often take for our true selves, is shaped by a multitude of factors right from an early age. Our history, together with our family environment, socio-cultural and economic back-ground, the values and beliefs we are exposed to, all influence our character, personality and our roles in society.
Sheikh Aly N’Daw’s approach is revolutionary. His words, subtle, yet stimulating, almost inevitably create a sense of awareness and a pressing need to engage with one’s individual responsibility to establish an alternative social order where the Human Being can re-discover his inherent splendour and true role as a conscious vicegerent of this planet.
Sufism Today by Sheikh Aly N’Daw
Sufism, often referred to as the esoteric dimension of Islam, is a science that educates the Human Heart and leads us to the experience of Truth as a reality. It has appealed to Mankind since time immemorial. The resurgence of Spirituality in contemporary society has seen a renewed interest in Sufism over recent decades.
In this short series of talks, Sheikh Aly N’Daw, shares his revolutionary vision of Sufism in modern times. How can we look inwardly, to understand who we truly are and discover the faculties we have been endowed with as human beings? How can we draw on Sufi wisdoms to improve the human condition in today’s world?
Liberation Therapy by Sheikh Aly N’Daw
How then can we become emotionally free and choose to live consciously with a sense of inner purpose? Developed by Sheikh Aly N’Daw, Liberation Therapy is his answer. This self-development method for evaluating ourselves and our lives in the present moment. It raises our awareness of the emotions and experiences that we lived in our childhood and shows us how they continue to influence our adult life. We are therefore not emotionally free, as we are constantly trying to avoid the experiences that we previously found unpleasant. Ironically we find ourselves living the same experiences that we do not like over and over again. It often seems that we are constantly attracting the situations and experiences that we are actively trying to avoid!
Liberation Therapy guides us through an inner process to transform our emotions and past experiences into a driving force for self-discovery and personal development. It allows us to discover our authentic self, our inner capabilities and our sense of purpose. This book is aimed at all those seeking to be more self-aware, improve their interpersonal skills and relationships as well as discover an inner sense of purpose and fulfillment.
The Initiatory way to Peace
Sheikh Aly N’Daw, invites us to lay the foundations of peace today, for our generation and for future ones. For this there is only one way: to leave the path of resignation and take that of determined nonviolent action.
How? The first two chapters invite us to become conscious of our inner dimensions: what we find there is what we have inherited from our history and our family, based on preconceived truths and a debatable common sense. There we will discover what needs to be preserved and what needs to be transformed to enable us to become agents of peace.
Then follows the precious methodology of transformation: there are seven steps to go through, the seven steps of an inner ladder leading to the awakening of consciousness. When this consciousness is awakened, we develop the capacity to transform the emotions linked to our historical and family relationships legacies. Hence we are capable of nonviolent action. This inner nonviolence eventually manifests through the last three stages of the Initiatory Way to Peace. Thus, the outlines of a new society are drawn, on the basis of an economy and democracy of peace, and on the principles of service to others.
These pages are far from being a utopian concept. If peace exists, it can be found in these principles and universal values. This book enables us to believe in our dreams and even encourages us to dream, for only dreams can become realities! This book is a must, so that our future generations may know the Golden Age of Peace. To put its wisdoms into practice is our responsibility today.
