Talk on Moroccan Sufism in Rabat

Faouzi Skali will be presenting a lecture on Sufism and Society at 21h30 tomorrow, Tuesday 31 August at the Villa des Arts in Rabat.

Skali (above) is a well-known anthropologist and Sufi scholar, and founder of the Fes Festival of World Sacred Music and the Fes Festival of Sufi Culture. At the lecture, he will ask the following:

Is spirituality a path of an essentially personal accomplishment, or can it also indicate the way towards collective transformation?
Can it generate new thought, new art, new poetry; can it inspire social and political thought?
What relevance does spiritual renewal have today in the Muslim world, and beyond?
It's on these questions, both historical and of great meaning today, that we are asked to reflect.

Venue: Villa des Arts, 10 Rue Beni Mellal, corner of Avenue Mohamed V and Hassan II – Rabat.
Tel. : (+212) 537 66 85 79 à 82
