Event: Residential Sufi Retreat: Listening to the Call of the Beloved.
Facilitator: Murshida Saki Lee.
Venue: Allanton Sanctuary, DG2 0RY, SW Scotland.
Dates: 17-19 April 2015.
Event Description: “Come out of the circle of time and into this circle of love....”
Each year during the darkness of winter, a caravan of truth seekers meets to re-kindle the fire of love that is an inner source of guidance, joy and inspiration. Stepping outside the circle of time and outer life’s hectic pace of change and uncertainty we enter the silence and music of retreat in order to re-connect with what is sacred and meaningful to us.
During our time together, we shall share spiritual practices grounded in Sufi mysticism, silent meditation, contemplative self-inquiry, sacred music and the Dances of Universal Peace. This is a popular retreat bringing together an international fellowship of beloveds, so register early!
This retreat is guided by Murshida Saki Lee, a spiritual guide and teacher in the Sufi Order International. She was a student of Pir Vilayat Inayat Khan for over 30 years, and guides students and retreats internationally. Saki works professionally in the field of East Asian medicine, and delights in gardening, singing, sharing the Dances of Universal Peace, fostering community, finding ways to bridge spirituality and social activism.....and playing with her cats!
This event is supported by the Edinburgh International Centre for Spirituality and Peace, EICSP.
