Definition of Mysticism (Erfan) and Its Relationship with Healing as Approached by Halqeh Mysticism

Mohammad Ali Taheri
Abstract—The human being’s mission is to seek Kamal (spiritual completeness), and illness is one of the obstacles that make it difficult. A patient is so engaged in his illness and its related issues that he thinks less about God and divine ambitions, whereas in health, the individual enjoys a better state in which to deliberate on God and self-awareness. Mysticism is in itself effective for healing. At times, the therapeutic intervention is quantitative and involves physicians, medicine, check-ups, and the like, and at times it is qualitative with no check-ups or medication. For example, when we pray for God to heal someone, we are moving towards their treatment, and if our prayer is granted without quantitative intervention, we have been engaged in their treatment. This intervention is not quantitative, and although the process’s effect may be scientifically studied and observed, it is considered a qualitative intervention that is extremely effectual for achieving self-awareness. In a treatment like Faradarmani, an Iranian complementary and alternative medicine founded by Mohammad Ali Taheri, the individual becomes pragmatically familiar with Interuniversal Consciousness, and this experience is a turning-point that moves him towards the source of this consciousness. Thus, Faradarmani can mark the beginning of mysticism.

Index Terms—Faradarmani, halqeh mysticism, healing, inspiration, interuniversal consciousness.
