Sufi Meditation and Zikr
Sunday, January 19, 4 – 5:30 PM
Sunday is the next meeting for Sufi Meditation and Zikr, held twice a month in Annandale, at a home about two miles outside the Beltway. We meet for about 90 minutes and do some Zikr and some guided meditation. Then we have a simple potluck supper.
We meet on the first and third Sunday of the month, at 4 PM. We meet at a home near NOVA, just off of Wakefield Chapel Rd, which from the Beltway can be reached from Little River Turnpike or from Braddock Rd. Parking is easy. Sufis have a long tradition of meditating on themes. A famous example is the eleven Naqshbandi principles, including:
Be conscious of the breath;
Watch your step;
Find solitude in the crowd
The 99 Names of God are common themes of meditation, singly, in groups, and all together. Even the central Sufi practice of Zikr is often done as a meditation on the phrase “La illaha illa ‘Llah,” with its endless deep meanings like, “There is no reality but God.”
New people are very welcome. For directions or if you have questions, please email me at [masked] or give me a call.
