    Body, Heart and Soul: The Anatomy of Illumination
    Week 1A July 21st – 27th 2019
    Seminar with Pir Zia Inayat-Khan & Zuleikha

    Pir Zia and Zuleikha will explore the heart as a bridge between body and soul during this week of meditation, movement and Zikr. By evoking the wisdom inherent in body through somatic practice, and tapping into Pirzadi-Shahida Noor-Un-Nisa’s inspiring spiritual legacy through the ethics of the heart, contemplation and storytelling, we explore unity through the visible and invisible.

    Embodied here on Earth, we take this opportunity to attune to the subtle art of illumination through inspiration. On the surface everything seems fragmented, but deep down everything is connected within a single sacred whole. The body, heart and soul have a secret wisdom. To awaken it is to see through the veil of separation. Then the divine presence is perceived everywhere and Earth is transformed into heaven.

    Be Moved: Dance in the Ocean of the Heart

    Thursday, June 6, 2019 7:00 - 9:30 pm

    Sukhasiddhi Foundation, Fairfax, CA

    Sliding Scale $25-$45

    Free movement in this dance of life is an opportunity to explore the “call of the heart.” We often say, “I have a feeling in my bones,” the sensing of Spirit through this body, our instrument, we live in. The world seems so fast now, many of us live in a state of worry much of the time—so many decisions. We put our expression on hold.

    BE MOVED ~ Allow creativity to speak through the instrument of motion. Let the Love we long for guide our exploration. Allow for Joy. Find your own play of rhythm and melody. World music, devotion, emotion, soul expression. This is the invitation to Dance in the Ocean of the Heart, guided by Zuleikha. Join us in this very special event. No experience is necessary. If you are a person who wants to move freely, this is an opportunity to dive into the mystery and explore.
