Graduate Studies

***For the time being, the Graduate Studies has been suspended. A new series for advanced practitioners entitled The Wisdom of the Prophets will be offered starting in November 2015.

Graduate Studies courses at the Abode of the Message have been presented in paired sessions, with the first emphasizing more traditional teaching and study, and the second as a group retreat based on the teachings of the first session.  A pre-requisite for attending a Graduate Course is completion of the Suluk Academy Core Training.
