This book consists of all 14 lessons of the Academy of Self Knowledge's Course ONE – Cosmology of the Self. It has been renamed to The Sufi Map of the Self and published as an eBook.
The book explores the entire cosmology of the self through time and maps the evolution of the self from before birth through life, death and beyond.
The course is contextualized within the age we are living in and is aimed at anybody with a yearning for higher knowledge based on eternal truth. It shows us how to attain greater levels of inner stability in an unstable world so that we can deal with, and even appreciate the outer instability we find ourselves in, rather than constantly resisting it.
The course takes us a step at a time towards the realization that we are outwardly limited but inwardly far more than who we thought we were. It shows us how to prioritize everything that is sacred and enduring in our lives and to discard all that casts us far from the One. The book gives us the means by which we can nurture this higher aspect within ourselves in a wholesome way, making it an invaluable guide to life.
ABOUT SHAYKH FADHLALLA HAERI
Acknowledged as a master of self-knowledge and a spiritual philosopher, Shaykh Fadhlalla Haeri’s role as a teacher grew naturally out of his own quest for self-fulfillment.
He travelled extensively on a spiritual quest which led to his eventual rediscovery of the pure and original Islamic heritage of his birth, and the discovery of the truth that reconciles the past with the present, the East with the West, the worldly with the spiritual – a link between the ancient wisdom teachings and our present time.
A descendant of five generations of well-known and revered spiritual leaders, Shaykh Fadhlalla Haeri has taught students throughout the world for over 30 years.
He is a gifted exponent of how the self relates to the soul, humankind’s link with the Divine, and how consciousness can be groomed to reflect our higher nature.
The unifying scope of his perspective emphasizes practical, actionable knowledge that leads to self-transformation, and provides a natural bridge between seemingly different Eastern and Western approaches to spirituality, as well as offering a common ground of higher knowledge for various religions, sects and secular outlooks.
He is a prolific author of more than thirty books relating to the universal principles of Islam, the Qur’an, and its core purpose of enlightenment.
