Elhamdullillah, it was wonderful to join many of you for Sherif Baba's Oovoo sohbet yesterday.
I thought I would share a couple of things from Sh. Kabir Helminski's website that originally appeared in Gnosis magazine.
In Sufism, great importance is given to the complete human being, the one who is considered activated. It is through the guidance of such a human being that the inner process unfolds. Any particular beliefs in dogmas dissolve as the complete one assists the seeker to fall fully into his or her relationship with God and to recognize the importance of that essential experience. --Metin Bobaroglu
The following link is to an interview with Refik Algan in the same issue of Gnosis.
