All Roads Lead to the Soul: The Melodies of Remembrance

Sufi Mureeds Retreat:

Zikr, Silence, Wasifa Immersion, Community

7-10 November 2019

Allanton Peace Sanctuary, Dumfrieshire, Scotland

Neil Douglas-Klotz (Saadi Shakur Chishti) 

As Sufi mureeds, we are faced with the urgencies of daily life, the enormous distractions and challenges of living in our times. At the same time, we feel the need to keep our hearts fresh, our sense of purpose renewed and invigorated. How can we do it?

During this retreat, we will seek the door to this balance in our souls through several forms of remembrance practice (zikr). We will also dive into our selves through various “beautiful names,” which can help us to reframe our everyday reality. The retreat will also include periods of silence, shared body prayer (silent, Aramaic or Arabic), walking meditation, Dances of Universal Peace, and teaching stories. As wayfarers on the path, we have a wealth of meditation and practice at our disposal. Which can best serve us at this time of our lives and the life of the world?

This retreat is limited to initiated Sufi students (mureeds) of any lineage, initiates of the Dervish Healing Order and others by permission.

 Time:Retreat begins on Thursday, November 7 at 6.30 p.m. with dinner and finishes on Sunday, November 10 with lunch.
