"An Esoteric Quest for The Golden Age of Andalusia: Sufis, Kabbalists and Christian Philosophers in Medieval Spain" A five day conference in Granada, Spain From the organizers' announcement: Our conference will be a quest for the beauty and spiritual philosophy of the golden age of Andalusia, a time when a culture of tolerance among Muslims, Christians and Jews produced works of enduring spiritual and artistic genius. Outstanding faculty from Spain, France, Britain and the United States will address such topics as: the Zohar, the Sufis of Andalusia, Arabic alchemy, Ibn ‘Arabi and Rumi, the knowledge system of Ramon Llull and the place of Spain and Islam in the Grail stories. Evenings will be filled with poetry, flamenco and music that emerged from the blending of ‘Las Tres Culturas.’ Participants will have the option of two post-conference journeys. One will travel through the sacred sites of Andalusia. The other will venture to Marrakech, Morocco. Co-sponsored with The Ibn ‘Arabi Society, Centro Abierto Tomillo, The Lumen Foundation and Junto de Andalucia.
