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.
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.
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 and stay for tea afterward.
HAVING A CLOSER AND DEEPER CONNECTION WITH GOD
This new 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.
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.
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.
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 at the center or online.
