Zikr is the Ceremony of the Remembrance of God, a traditional ecstatic practice of the Sufis, as observed by the order of the Sufi Ruhaniat International. We will be singing very old sacred phrases in Arabic.
Bismillah - "We begin in the Name of Divine Unity"
La illaha illa‘llah - "All of Reality is contained within Divine Unity"
Hu - "Divine Unity is constantly vibrating into all forms, in all times and places."
This practice is noted for producing strong expansion of consciousness. It was one of the central practices of the Persian poet Rumi, allowing him the divine expansion and insight from which he spoke his inspired poetry. Both beginners and those with experience can gain enormous benefit. Of course, not every practice fits every person. To us, the most important thing is that you find a way that works, not that it be our way. Keep searching until you find!
