The teachings of the 12th century Andalusian mystic philosopher, Muhyiddin Ibn 'Arabi, reached throughout the Muslim world from Spain through China and Indonesia, providing inspiration for a diverse range of intellectual, creative and artistic forms throughout these regions. His ideas are centred on a common spiritual Reality and metaphysical Unity underlying religious and cultural diversity, and they became widely influential following his death in 1240 CE. In the past century, these same universal spiritual aspects of his thought have increasingly inspired Western scholars, artists, creative thinkers and other interested parties from a range of religious and cultural standpoints. This work outlines one key aspect of his influence, through the study of a representative group of people who have been active in promoting his ideas in the English speaking world in the past thirty years by means of the educational activities of the Beshara Trust and the more academic Muhyiddin Ibn 'Arabi Society. Through interviews, discussions, participant observation and the study of published and unpublished documentation, the study investigates how the Beshara School has used Ibn 'Arabi's teachings in assisting a wide range of students from around the world towards personal, spiritual development. It also shows how the Muhyiddin Ibn 'Arabi Society has evolved into an international organisation with increasing influence not only in English speaking countries, but increasingly in the Muslim world from Bosnia to Indonesia. Closely paralleling their earlier historical influences, the works of Ibn 'Arabi are having a rapidly expanding global influence at the present time in many different domains. The powerful cross-cultural, inter-religious appeal of his teachings provides a crucial positive contribution to the growing dialogue between adherents of the world's diverse religious faiths.
