“Baraka: The Energy of the Heart”

With
Saadi Neil Douglas Klotz and
Philip Tansen O’Donohoe

Through contemplation the heart becomes alive and the living heart is full of light
and this is the light of divinity which, striking the surface of the heart, pours forth Baraka upon the world.
It is the heart only that can collect the spiritual emanations of blessing
just as the sun-glass collects the rays of the sun, and focuses them.

-Murshid Samuel L. Lewis

The heart is the fountain of Baraka, which is a living magnetic transmission of the blessings of the cosmos. Breath is the channel that brings the blessings of Baraka down to earth. The metaphysical aspects of breath are an area of considerable study in of the esoteric schools. The one who masters breath masters life itself. As we purify our mind through meditation and other practices the ability to absorb and to give out Baraka increases. Literally we become transformers of life energy for the benefit of those around us as well as for our own benefit and growth.

Drawing from spiritual methods inspired by the ancient traditions of humanity, as well as current body-oriented psychology we will enjoy the practices of Dances of Universal Peace, sitting meditation, walking meditation, Zen and other Dharmic practices, chant, and Sufi stories.

The retreat is open to all who are ready and willing to open the doors of the heart.
