SAMA: Events & Retreats

Hello friends,  Like you, we are concerned for the health of our whole beautiful world body that we are each a part of. At this time we are following the guidance to not gather together in public. We also know that what happens when we do gather is healing and further cultivates good medicine for ourselves and for the planet. Lets link hearts and minds, practicing healing, compassion, strength, courage, generosity, gratitude, and loving kindness. Lets breathe the grief, sadness, suffering and fear that arises, into the heart and respond from the depths of our humanity.  This is a good day to live!  
With love and blessings,  Halima & Abraham

Retreats 2020

Sufi Retreat in Spain Jan. 3-6

This was a beautiful retreat with DUP leaders & dancers gathering from Spain, France, Russia, and Germany. Alhumdulillah! 

Sufi Sesshin, March 7  9-5

We are so grateful for this day of retreat. It was the last in-person retreat we held before the mandated worldwide personal- separation retreat due to the pandemic of 2020. 

Dance Deepening  May 22-25

With great regret, we are cancelling our annual  Memorial Day Weekend Dance Deepening Retreat in North Central MA.

Inshallah!
