Each year the Society organizes Symposia in the UK and the USA on an aspect of Ibn 'Arabi's work.
These international gatherings bring together people from many different fields and traditions, and include scholars, students, and anyone interested in what Ibn 'Arabi has to say. These events provide a unique opportunity for both speakers and delegates, specialists and non-specialists, to enrich their understanding of the Shaykh's teachings and their relevance today. The Society also encourages public seminars and lectures and can provide speakers on request.

However, people not registered for that trip are also welcome to take part. The seminar will be free for all members of MIAS-America, and for other participants will cost Euros 30 (advance payment by bank transfer) or Euros 40 (for payment at the time). More details will be available soon on the MIAS-Latina website.
