The Lifepath Dialogues Gathering is held on the fourth Wednesdays, 6:30-8 PM, at Creekside Center in Prescott, Arizona. The intent is to build like-hearted community and dialogue about what truly matters. I choose monthly topics from my blog and host the evening with special invited guest(s) whose philosophies and work are relevant to the topic. The format involves my presentation of material to create a framework and interview of the special guests. This portion is recorded to share with the world community—wherever you are. Then we turn off the recorder and turn to intimate sharing.

November’s special guest was Yaqin Lance Sandleben. Yaqin is a Cherag, an ordained minister of American Sufism following the Chisti Sufi lineage of India. He leads the Dances of Universal Peace, Universal Worship Service and offers guidance on the path of spiritual awakening. Yaqin lives in Prescott, Arizona, where he has practiced pharmacy for 35 years, raised a family, and served the community in different ways—mostly through volunteering. His interests in religion, spiritual development, and the awakening process began at the age of 12 in the Christian Church. For many years he studied well known and obscure paths of awakening. He began meditating 40 years ago and embraced American Sufism 33 years ago. He has also studied and practiced Buddhism with many teachers, including HH the Dalai Lama and other Tibetan teachers. His Sufi connection has led him to India, to the shrines of saints, and to the study of Raga, Indian Classical music.
