Hittfeld Retreat 2016 Der erste Schritt (The First Step)
Retreat in Hittfeld, Germany
September 2016

egl./dt. übersetzt (in English with simultaneous German translation)

Tue einen Schritt aus Dir heraus, und siehe da: Der Pfad!
—Abu Said-Ibn Abi-l-Khayr

Llewellyn Vaughan-Lee hat diese Vorträge für all jene gehalten, die schon seit vielen Jahren dem Naqshbandiyya-Mujaddidiyya Sufipfad des Golden Sufi Centers folgen. Er spricht darüber, wie wichtig es im spirituellen Leben ist, diesen ersten Schritt weg von sich selbst zu machen. Nur wenn dieser Schritt immer wieder getan wird, kann Gott—der Geliebte—die zentrale Achse im Leben eines Mystikers werden.

Take one step away from yourself and behold: the Path!
—Abu Said-Ibn Abi-l-Khayr

In these lectures Llewellyn Vaughan-Lee addresses himself to individuals that have been following the Naqshbandiyya-Mujaddidiyya Sufi Path of the Golden Sufi Center for many years. He speaks about the importance of that first step away from oneself in spiritual life.

Das Lied der Schöpfung (The Song of Creation)
Retreat in Emmetten, Switzerland
April 2016

egl./dt. übersetzt (in English with simultaneous German translation)

Alles in der Schöpfung hat eine direkte Verbindung zum Schöpfer und als Menschen haben wir die Möglichkeit, diese Verbindung ins Bewusstsein zu bringen. Aber nur wenn wir eine reife Spiritualität leben, können wir dieses ursprüngliche Ja zum Leben wirklich wahrnehmen und so der Erde das Liebeslied der Schöpfung zurückgeben.

Everything in creation has a direct connection to the Creator and as human beings we have the possibility to bring this connection into our consciousness. But only if we live a mature spirituality, we can fully commit ourselves to that primordial yes to life and thus give back to the earth the love song of creation.

Aus Liebe zum Wirklichen (For Love of the Real)
Retreat in Hittfeld, Germany
September 2015

egl./dt. übersetzt (in English with simultaneous German translation)

Die Suche nach dem Wirklichen ist der Mittelpunkt jeden mystischen Rufes. Llewellyn Vaughan-Lee spricht in diesen Vorträgen über die Liebe zum Wirklichen. Wie kann es uns gelingen, diese Liebe heutzutage zu leben -- in einer Welt, die durch sehr beschränkende Gedankenformen eng geworden ist, und in der das Wirkliche kaum Raum hat? Doch seit jeher ist es Aufgabe der Mystiker, das Wirkliche zu erkennen und in den Alltag zu bringen. Durch sie geht dieser ursprüngliche Ruf, das Lied der Wirklichkeit, nicht vergessen und die Durchgänge zwischen den Welten bleiben offen und lebendig.

The search for the Real is at the core of every mystical call. In these talks Llewellyn Vaughan-Lee speaks about the love of the Real. How can we live this love in our present time - in a world that has become dense because of very limiting thought forms and where there is hardly any space for the Real any more? It has always been the task of the mystics to know the Real and to bring it into everyday life. Mystics hold the memory of this primordial call, the song of the Real. They keep the passageways between the worlds open and alive.

This talk explores the simple but essential truth: that the mystical journey which takes us deep within the heart is always for the sake of the Beloved, never for our sake. In this present time, when so much is distorted, it is vital that we remember this in our practice.

Why Dreamwork CD Cover Why Dreamwork?
Recorded at a Group Meeting, 1999

Dreamwork is the modern equivalent of the ancient Sufi teaching stories.
— Irina Tweedie

Through dreamwork we connect with a hidden part of ourself, with the wisdom and guidance of our true self. We also work to reclaim our symbolic consciousness, the forgotten feminine mode of thinking through which the deeper meaning of life reveals itself. And for the mystic the practice of dreamwork is a preparation for the work of catching the divine hint, reawakening the mystical consciousness through which the signs of God become known.

Paradoxes of Mysticism
This is a talk given by Irina Tweedie about 1985-86

"True religion is a practical mysticism which finds God not only in the silence of the soul but also in all the affairs of life. The only mysticism that appeals to me is the kind which finds God in all things, in all men and in all experiences, and which goes out into the highways and byways and bears the heat and the burden of the day."
— Henry Thomas Humbling, as quoted from the recording
