Wazifah Studies explores the 99 Beautiful Names of God. Extended periods of recitation of these sacred phrases is an important part of the developmental program for mureeds as given by Hazrat Inayat Khan. The repetition of these divine Names, often in pairs and in relational families, is used as a means of God-realization. Part of this realization is to come into wholeness and integration of self, through a process of embodiment of the divine qualities and individuation. This process involves the healing of psychological wounds that reinforce our creation of a false ego, one marked by a painful sense of isolation. The practice expands the limitations imposed by the “false self” into an increasing sense of the Real. - Murshid Wali Ali Meyer
This program of study was offered monthly in Santa Rosa, CA over a period of 2 years in 2007 and 2008. The materials have been divided into four series, allowing a student to study in a self-paced fashion. Many students take two months or more to work with each session. The materials have been used in local study circles adapted to meet the needs of the group. Finding a study partner or group can be extremely helpful.
Wali Ali is available by email for questions about the process and any experiences that arise.
