Sessions and Talks

Paths to God   
Saturday Session 11:00am - 12:30pm

Pir Zia Inayat Khan
Following in the footsteps of the Prophets toward the goal of divine consciousness.

Introduction to the Zikr: Remembering the Beloved -- Zikr Allah
Saturday Session 11:00am - 12:30pm

Imam Bilal Hyde
How can we understand the relationship between the enlightenment of the spirit and action in the material world? Can we harmonize the place of our inner lives with the demands of the outward? Does the Sufi Path involve both a heart in love and a mind thinking about the world?
PLEASE NOTE: If you haven’t participated in a zikr, and plan to be at the zikr on Saturday evening, we suggest attending this Session.

A Song of Love   
Saturday Session 11:00am - 12:30pm and 3:45pm - 5:15pm

Maata Lynn Barron
From the innermost chamber of the Heart, the One you love is calling you home. Have you heard Her singing Heart?: Come to me, come to me. Do you have the spaciousness within you to hold true Love? Join Maata Lynn in meditation and inquiry.

Zikr: the Song of Love
Saturday Evening Zikr 7:30pm - 9:30pm

Imam Bilal Hyde
The art of singing can lead us to the path of Perfect Love. By using the rhythm of beautiful sounds and fiery breath we can arouse the heartfelt energy of the soul, and perhaps touch the deepest places of spirit.
PLEASE NOTE: If you haven’t participated in a zikr, and plan to be at the zikr on Saturday evening, we suggest attending the Session Imam Bilal on Saturday from 11:00am - 12:30pm.

The End of Silence
Sunday Talk 9:45am - 10:45am

Peter Kingsley
At any moment we can only say one thing, sing one tune. And whenever we speak about one thing, everything else remains silent. For thousands of years we have talked about thousands of things, but everyone has been silent about the sacred origins of our Western civilization: about the essential purpose of this world we live in. Now is the time to speak out about it again.
