This list has been created to facilitate examination of the path of the Darvish
(dervish) through the study of both traditional and modern Sufi texts. We will
also examine the practices and exercises of the different sufi orders insofar
as may be done in a forum such as this.
Though this list has as its focus the central path of Sufism we will also,
as seems appropriate, include materials that are peripheral to Sufism
such as information from the body of "Fourth Way" work and the thought
of Idries Shah.
The emphasis of this list is participation and each
member of the list will be expected to introduce themselves in whatever way
seems best to them. List members are also greatly encouraged to participate
as much as possible in the discussions even if they think that they are "just
beginners". It is expected that list members will treat each other with
respect, flames, name calling and other forms of put down will not be tolerated.
The native language of this list is E-Prime (English Prime)

list. Thank you for your understanding.
