a Healing Retreat with  Saadi Neil Douglas Klotz

what, when, and where.... 

Friday March 31 - Saturday April 1, 2017

9:30 - 17:00 both days

Soefi Centrum den Haag 

Anna Paulownastraat 78

2518 BJ Den Haag

(near the Peace Palace, accessible by tram and bus from Central Station - see side bar Directions to Peace Palace)

“Light and life have their centre in the centre of every form, but express themselves in the direction in which they spread…. Every atom of one’s being, mental or physical, is radiant and throws its rays outward; these are life itself and give life. All illness is lack of life; and it needs life to be cured.”

-- Hazrat Inayat Khan, from “Health”

This two day seminar at Sufi Centre Den Haag will explore, with chant, walking meditation, meditation and movement, the active practices of Hazrat Inayat Khan and Murshid Samuel Lewis that promote health and healing at all levels of being.

Hazrat Inayat Khan wrote extensively on health and healing, embodying his teaching in the AbsentHealing Ritual. Murshid Samuel Lewis expanded on the healing work of Hazrat Inayat Khan through walking meditations, wasifa (mantra) and concentrations that promote healthy boundaries, release past impressions, and develop the self as a channel for healing. We will also consider the heritage of classical Sufi healing that inspired both teachers, as well as parallels in the healing stories of Jesus. In addition, the seminar will include a number of Dances of Universal Peace and moving zikrs inspired by this work.

Neil Douglas-Klotz (Saadi Shakur Chishti) is a Murshid in the lineage of the Sufi Ruhaniat International and a Shafayat in the Dervish Healing Order. He is the co-founder of the International Network for the Dances of Universal Peace, and author of numerous books on Native Middle Eastern mysticism. (see his site: www.abwoon.org)
