Event: Heartfulness—Clearing and Strengthening Our Inner Life:
A Dervish Healing Order Open Weekend.

Facilitators: Neil Douglas-Klotz and Natalia Lapteva.
Venue: The Old Kirk, Kirk Wynd KY1 1EH, Kirkcaldy, Fife, Scotland
Dates: Saturday 26 - Sunday 27 September 2015.
Times: 10am-5pm.
Event Description: Interspiritual meditation and contemplation for health, self-healing and wellness.

Exploring the power of the breath and prayer, developing magnetism, concentration and a healing atmosphere;

Practices for developing healthy boundaries and becoming a container and channel for healing energy;

Learning to clear and strengthen the mind and emotions.

“Heartfulness” meditation: a unified approach to stillness and ‘simple presence’ contemplation.

Walking meditation to help bring prayer and spiritual practice into everyday life.

Pathways of the heart (Sufi wasifa), selected from the ‘99 Beautiful Names’ that encourage healing and accomplishment.

Sitting meditation, the Sufi healing ritual, chant, Sufi zikr and Dances of Universal Peace will be also be included.

Practices will be drawn from many world traditions, as it is the Sufi way to see unity in all spiritual paths.

This is an open weekend focused around the work of the Dervish Healing Order in the UK of which Neil and Natalia are the senior representatives. The Dervish Healing Order, an interspiritual sister branch of the Sufi Ruhaniat International (www.ruhaniateurope.org), focuses its worldwide work on training conductors for the Sufi healing ritual, which sends healing energy to those who have requested it. As part of this work, the DHO shares practices of self-healing that increase health, well-being, magnetism, embodiment and compassion.

Neil is the author of several well-known books on Middle Eastern mysticism, including Prayers of the Cosmos, Desert Wisdom and The Sufi Book of Life. Natalia is a life-coach and psychotherapist; she is also doing healing work as a DHO healing conductor/initiator, as well as through other alternative systems of healing.

This two-day, non-residential workshop is open to all and sponsored by the Edinburgh Institute for Advanced Learning (www.eial.org) and the East Scotland Ruhaniat Sufi Community with support from the Edinburgh International Centre for Spirituality and Peace (www.eicsp.org).
