The Symposium

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 listeners, specialists and non-specialists, to enrich their understanding of Ibn ‘Arabi’s teachings and their relevance today. The Society also encourages public seminars and lectures and can provide speakers on request.
