Meeting Description:
Dear Beloveds,

Aisha Cotten, one of the main teachers at the University of Spiritual Healing and Sufism (, has offered to hold a zawiyah, or personal retreat, on Thursday, March 27th, at our home in Riverwoods from 10:00 am to 4:30 pm, at a charge of $45.

A zawiyah is a personal time to sit face-to-face with Allah. In our tradition, it is spent writing our guide Sidi al-Jamal's books, in the practice of Remembrance, or listening to surahs from the Quran. The benefit of doing this with Aisha is that she will give us guidance in our practice and support in our transitions.

To keep the day simple and quiet, please bring a bag lunch. I will have a simple soup to share. Copies of Sidi's books and writing materials will be available for those who don't have them, but if you do have your own copies, please bring them.

Please RSVP by noon on Wednesday to [address removed] or[masked]-1047. There is a minimum of six people to make it a go. If I do not have six, I will send out an email on Wednesday night to cancel the event.

Aisha also has some availability for private healing sessions. Please let me know if you are interested.

Love, Laila
