In the words of Hazrat Inayat Khan: We read in the Vadan, "Simplicity is the living beauty." Man today has made life so complex that whatever he seeks after, he wants to find in complexity. All things in life which have importance, beauty, and value are simple; and simplest of all things is the divine truth.
Outline of Practices and Reading References
Day 1 Attunement
The truth is not a newly invented theory, not a dogma, not an idea; it is reality itself. At the back of it is the self of man; therefore, it is simple. (Hazrat Inayat Khan)

NOTE: The background noise is from heavy rain falling during the class session. 38 minutes into the class tornado alerts sounded. Our class was joined by Murshid Khabir Kitz and members of his class who came to the lower level of the hall for protection from the storm. From 38 minutes onward you can listen to the heart conversation between Murshid Khabir and myself. It was indeed a blessing in diguise! I wanted to attend Murshid Khabir's class session and he mine, which had been simultaneously scheduled. God IS Great! Wishes and prayers are answered!
Day 2 Attunement
We human beings here have this tendency and it is also the tendency of the soul. Wherever it finds interest, joy, and pleasure, it remains, it settles there. But again, every soul is bound to its goal, it must reach there, and in order to reach the goal it must return.... There are, three different ways of returning, or one should really say going forward. One is the way of the drunken man; another of the man who is asleep; and the third is the way of the man whose eyes are open. (Hazrat Inayat Khan)

Day 3 Attunement
This process by which every soul comes forth and returns is the very process that the mystics of all ages have realized here on the earth; and the true meaning of mysticism or spiritual attainment is to know fully. (Hazrat Inayat Khan)

Day 4 Attunement - Note: This session begins with a reading by NurAlim Graves on DreamVisions
The very fact that there is so much materialism shows that every soul feels uncomfortable and begins to long for spiritual attainment. But how do they pursue spiritual attainment? (Hazrat Inayat Khan)
