Uniting Inner and Outer
May 13 - 16, 2004
Black Mountain, North Carolina
If the eye of the heart is open
The purpose of the Sufi Conference
is to create a container for a spiritual energy, a frequency
of divine love that is needed in the West for its spiritual evolution.
This energy of divine love cannot be brought into life by any
single Sufi order or teacher, but only when different orders
and lovers of God are gathered together for the sake of the One,
for the sake of the whole.
In each atom there will be
one hundred secrets.
Within the heart everything
is one. The lover aspires to live this unity, bringing together
the inner world of the soul and outer world of forms. With each
and every breath we realize the truth that "wheresoever
you turn, there is the face of God."
Presenters will include Pir Zia Inayat Khan,
Kabir Helminski, Camille Helminski, Imam Bilal Hyde, Khatiba
Grais, Shahabuddin David Less, Ma Lynn Barron, Llewellyn Vaughan-Lee,
and musicians Yusuf Mahmoud, Asif Mahmoud and Ashraf Sharif.
