I'm looking for resources (books or web articles) on how the teachings of Sufism and mysticism in Islam are used to heal the psychiatric disorders of modern known psychiatry.
I'm looking for references of some successfully used methods to heal mental illnesses using Islamic Sufi mysticism teachings and practice.
I have some interest in affective computing. but when reading about this discipline i found major flaws in the methodology to deal with human emotions using 'affective computing techniques'. I have a plan to do research on how to understand human emotions using computing but introducing new concepts that doesn't only deal with human body physiological signals to interpret and infer emotions. i want to explore another dimension of human emotions based on The mysterious inner high feelings that are experienced by people practicing islamic Sufism. as Sufism seem to be very linked to human emotions and understanding how sufism deal with emotions and spirits we can try modeling this in some scientific or computational method that could benefit humanity.
