We invite you to join us for an experience of this way. Please come to any of our teachings, classes or healing circles (prayer, meditation and chanting done in a group), or attend an event we may be putting on. All are welcome regardless of race, color or religion. Sufism is a path of attraction, not conversion. Come and find out where the attraction of your heart is calling you.
Weekly Gathering (Tuesdays)
Deepening Your Connection to the Divine Light Within
Is your heart longing for greater peace, love and ease? Perhaps you are looking for a way to deepen your connection and to rest in the One, but are unsure of the next step. You may feel like you have connected many times, but then something happens and you feel pulled out and like the connection is lost.
It can be difficult to hold onto or deepen our experience of love and peace when challenges or a new phase in the spiritual walking comes along. In this highly experiential ongoing weekly class, we will explore and experience how to deepen our connection with the One so that more and more we can move through life with greater ease. Latif Phil Sorensen and Salima Cathy Carter will be holding this offering. Enrollment is open and ongoing, so you can join anytime.
Weekly Gathering (Sundays)
Sufi Healing Circle (dhikr)
A Sufi healing circle, also known as dhikr (or zikr) is a time when we gather as a community to Remember the Divine within. In dhikr, we invoke the light of God and allow it to open, clean and heal our body, mind, heart and spirit. Everyone is welcome to join these weekly community prayer and healing events.
Monthly Gathering (1st Sunday)
Community Connection Day
Once a month, as part of our Community Connection Day, we invite a teacher from around the United States and the world to offer a special teaching on various aspects of the spiritual life. Using state-of-the-art video conferencing technology at the Center, we experience and interact with these beautiful teachers and teachings every month. Please join us for these very special teachings.
Monthly Gathering (2nd Sunday)
Walking with the Mystical Poets
Rahima Ritenbaugh will support us in using mystical poetry as a Sufi practice to inspire, open and deepen our hearts to more fully experience Divine Love. The mystical poets have encountered all the states of the heart and soul that we touch in our walking to God, and they share those states through images and metaphors that can touch the deepest layers of our hearts. Join us to ponder and taste with these amazing spiritual masters.
Monthly Gathering (3rd Sunday)
The Inspired Heart: Journey to the One
Salima Carter is offering this ongoing class that helps address the places in our hearts that are searching for something more. We will consider the lives of people of inspiration – spiritual masters, everyday heroes, leaders, and saints. While we will look at the outer circumstances of their lives and the various tests they walked through, more importantly, we will spend time feeling into their hearts and spirits and, God willing, experience the inspiration and the unique attributes the Divine sent through each of them.
Monthly Gathering (4th Sunday)
Having a Closer and Deeper Connection with God
This offering by Latif Phil Sorensen will continue the fourth Sunday of each month, unless there is a special event. This gathering is to help us remember and to reconnect; to remind us of what we have forgotten and to remind us how to open that door once again. In addition to reviewing the framework and under pinning of this process, we’ll spend ample time tasting and experiencing the inner states.
Monthly Gathering (5th Sunday)
Gathering in the Love: Special Fifth Sunday Topics
Fifth Sundays are a bit rare in that they only come four times a year. These special opportunities allow us to gather around a topic related to Sufism and spirituality and give us space to connect with our hearts, the Divine, and others. Gathering in the Love is a time to more deeply reflect, receive, and gain clarity about the practical steps we can take in both walking closer to God and being of service in the world. We would love to have you join us. Teachers and topics will vary for these Sundays.
Postponed until further notice due to COVID-19
Jumu’ah is the weekly community prayer service for Muslims. It can be a very deep communal experience of the Divine. It includes readings and reflections, as well as the traditional salat prayer. All are welcome. We will send out an announcement when it starts back up again from it’s pause due to COVID-19.
