Sufi Sesshin, Nov 6, 2021, 1-3pm ET~ via zoom

Zikr and Silent Meditation are two time-honored methods of awakening realization of the One. During sesshin we alternate the heart-opening practice of sung and spoken Zikr with silent sitting meditation. Together we join hearts and voices to reach deep into our inner life to support this realization. With Pir Shabda & Pirani Tamam and Murshids Allaudin, Leilah, Rahimah, Halima, and Abraham in this affirmation of the Unity which interconnects all life.
