Halima and Abraham


Murshida Halima and Murshid Abraham Sussman are senior mentor teachers in the Sufi Ruhaniat and Dances of Universal Peace lineages, inspired musicians, and experienced guides in the path of the awakening heart. They share joy and clarity arising from their own practice and tap a depth that arises from a lifetime of integrating spiritual practice, psychological exploration and a love of the natural world. They travel and teach Internationally, returning home to Massachusetts, local family and sangha. Halima seeded her love of the Sufi path in Murshid Sam’s Marin Dance Meeting. Abraham is an original mureed of Murshid Sam. Information about International and U.S. offerings are below. More details of local Boston/Cambridge area events can be found on the calendar pages for Sama Retreats and Events page and MA. (Photo taken in Syria, 2008)
