The Path of the Heart - Pir Zia Inayat Khan

Come explore the rich spiritual tradition that inspired Murshid Sam, who birthed the Dances of Universal Peace with Pir Zia Inayat-Khan, the grandson and a spiritual heir of Murshid Sam's teacher, Hazrat Inayat Khan.

Sufi teachings, meditations, and practices: What would it mean to think, speak, and act from the heart and soul? How would such an orientation affect our way of life, our relationships, our perceptions and emotions-and our identity itself? Beneath the surface of the mind are deeper faculties of feeling and knowing. To awaken this subtle physiology of spiritual perception is to behold the world with fresh vision and renewed purpose.

Weekend Tuition $195 through Oct. 19, $225 thereafter. Students and young adults under 30: $40 through Oct. 19, then $50. Limited scholarships available. Includes Friday evening talk, Saturday's Kirtan and full program Saturday 9:30 to 5:30 and Sunday 9:30 to 4. To register, please send checks (include an email address for details) payable to Sufi Order to: Gail Jamila Wellock, 1427 Filene Ct., Vienna, VA 22182. For further information and to arrange a place to stay: [masked] or call [masked]-3456.

Friday Evening Talk: “The Sufi Path of Love” (Friday, Nov. 1, 7:30-9pm). Pir Zia will illuminate this path with an evening of invocation, reflection, and remembrance evoking the perfume of the Sufi tradition, the devotional philosophy of Love, Harmony, and Beauty.

Saturday Evening: Universal Kirtan (Saturday, Nov. 2, 7:30pm). Joyous, participatory singing inspired by many spiritual traditions. Led by multiple WAMMIE-nominated musician Mahbood Len Seligman. No experience necessary.

    I'm a little confused! I know that Pir Zia is speaking on Friday evening, but this announcement makes it seem like there will be Dances on that same evening....

      To clarify: this weekend is about spiritual discourse, meditation, and contemplation and not really about the Dances. However, the tradition being explored is the same one that inspired the Dances. The only dancing that will happen is during the Saturday night kirtan. During that we will be blessed with a couple of Dances of Universal Peace led by the ever-wonderful Kathryn Ashera. Love, Mahbood

    Easy parking is available in the garage inside the Canal Rd entrance to the University. It's empty and free on Saturday and Sunday, and the charge isn't bad for Friday night.
