Birds in the Sun, by Roya Azal

Esoteric Quarterly & Art Work for Hoger Institut, Belgium

“Out beyond ideas of wrongdoing
and rightdoing there is a field.
I’ll meet you there.
When the soul lies down in that grass
the world is too full to talk about.” ~
Dschalāl ad-Dīn ar-Rūmī

Autumn (2017) – I feel honored to be the featured artist for Esoteric Quarterly, an independent, peer-reviewed journal dedicated to the trans-disciplinary investigation of the esoteric spiritual tradition.

Furthermore I was invited to contribute art work for a conference on Islamic Psychotherapy and Counselling in Gent, Belgium organized by the Hoger Institut. Such projects are of great value. My hope is that a counsciousness is rising amongst Western mental health professionals that the “integration” of people from pre-dominantantly Islamic countries and cultures is a trans-cultural process of learning, mutual appreciation and growth. Islam has a lot to give, especially to people who are traumatized and in dire need of stability, meaning and healing. To strengthen us and to teach us about the blessings of goodness was the original great endevour of the Prophet (as), as well as of Jesus (Isa, as). Healing is an universal right and need. It is our obligation in this life to learn, learn, learn…
