‘Brands to Brahm’ is how I would like to phrase my story. 15 years of working in the glitzy and creative world of advertising coupled with my freaky spiritual quest, makes me a unique blend of some sort. You’ve to meet me to believe it :).
It was while working on the biography of my guru Hzt. Roshan Shah Warsi that I managed to discover myself and experienced the real transformative power of Sufism(the creed of love). In 2013, I decided to quit my full time job and dedicate my second inning (Take2) to people development and spreading the message of ‘Conscious Living’.
I’m a certified Life Coach/Spiritual Coach, NLP, EFT, L&D professional. I help corporates as a ‘Performance Consultant’, and individuals as a ‘Personal Coach’.
I’ve formed a group called ‘New Age Sufis’ which conducts talks, workshops and retreats to help people gain clarity about their true self and give them a chance to experience the transformative power of Sufism; beyond music, chants and dance. As they say, ‘People are looking for the right thing, at wrong places’. New Age Sufis helps people get the placement right.
Life takes us on long and short journeys to places of our choice, sometimes with family, friends, colleagues and sometimes alone but it takes only the most lucky ones on an inward journey into their innerself. I experienced one recently in the land of Rumi, the God of love himself. Making this experience transient and everlasting was our friend, philosopher, guide, Hasnain Waris who held our hand through out never letting it go even when we gave up on ourselves. His heartfelt reverence and love for Sufism complimented by his deep knowledge on varied range of cultural and spiritual orientation was a treat making this trip extremely special and most memorable. Some of my 1:1 discussions with him were so reflective and insightful that even after getting back into my routine worldly life they are brightening my path. I always believed that there comes a point of inflection in everyone's life at least once and this one was surely for me. Wish many more such moments of inner happiness in times to come. Thanks Hasnain for the difference you made to my life.
Hasnain introduced me to a part of me which,in the din of life, was not being given ample time - my relationship with myself. He, very subtly, makes his way through your pscyhe,by introducing thoughts, which inspire you to ponder upon...and it takes you closer to yourself. His sessions are very refreshing as they are a good mix of logic,couplets from Sufism and several aspects of our spiritual self. The sessions have brought me to rethink my relationship with myself with a lot of love,which is a gift I cherish. Thank you,Hasnain!!
I attended 2 days workshop conducted by Hasnain Waris under the banner of New Age Sufis. I also had few personal sessions also with Hasnain. He talks about the crux of Sufism that is-what is the highest potential of a human beings, and the roadblocks in living that potential. He helped me immensely in looking at my own beliefs and conditioning, at a very subtle level. I would say that he helped me in moving up the ladder. I would recommend every genuine spiritual seeker to attend his two day workshop or attend personal sessions.
