Amir Ahmad Nasr: The Dawn of an Integral Islam
Thursday, June 30, 2011 from 7:00 PM to 9:30 PM (PDT)
The recent Tunisian and Egyptian uprisings (video) have demonstrated to the world that young Muslim freedom fighters today have something explosive in their hands.
No, it’s not a bomb. It’s a computer connected to the Internet. And it has the power to help ignite an uprising, and blow apart the structures of ignorance, repression and indoctrination that too often still imprison the Muslim mind. Moreover, it has the power to help disseminate liberating, more inclusive and spiritually rich understandings of religion that honor tradition but also embrace modernity. Best of all, it’s already happening–everywhere.
And now, more than ever it’s happening in influential segments of the Muslim world where the Internet has forever altered yesterday’s dictatorial politics of ignorance and ushered in a new politics of knowledge, and the dawn of an Integral Islam./p>
Join us this 30th June to learn how and why this transformation is taking place with Amir Ahmad Nasr.
Like many of his fellow veteran Arab digital activists, he’s been active online as a voice of dissent since 2006, way before the tipping point of the Arab uprisings, and has only come out to reveal his identity recently after five years of anonymous blogging.
He is also the curator of The Future of Islam In the Age of New Media, and the author of the upcoming memoir Islam: A Love Story – How Fundamentalism Stole My Mind, Broke My Heart, and Blogging Freed My Mystic Soul, in which he highlights the liberating role integral theory played in his journey of spiritual awakening.
He blogs at The Sudanese Thinker and writes for Comment is free at The Guardian.
