The Beautiful Names of Life

A Sufi Retreat with Neil Douglas-Klotz (Saadi Shakur Chishti)

 

 

Dances of Universal Peace, walking meditation, contemplation, chant, spiritual practice, body awareness and teaching stories from the world’s rich treasure chest of wisdom.

Life presents us with many faces of blessing and unripeness, with challenge and
opportunity. How do we witness it all from a heartfelt place, discovering in the signs
of life the activity of one Heart, one Beloved?

This retreat will continue to explore the original spirituality of the Sufi tradition, the
remembrance of our “original nature,” called fitrah. We will dive into the “beautiful
names,” feeling in them processes that constantly go on within and around us. While
based in the original prayer and spiritual practices of Hazrat Inayat Khan, we will
also explore the ancient nomadic human traditions that underlie all of the world’s
religions. This ancient strain of awareness reveals the earliest remembrances of our
human ancestors, messages in a bottle they left behind to help us understand
ourselves and our world better. When we strip away what is unnecessary from our
hearts and minds, we find the Real within, the more living Life.

This retreat is open to all.
