Program Intro

From March to December, every month, Bay Dervish will do a whole Saturday at Rudramandir in Berkeley under the umbrella name Sufism & the Art of Loving. These sessions are a place for you to find your own understanding of and approach to loving. Loving yourself, loving others, loving "the one," loving the One ... we'll travel through them all.

Afternoon & Evening Session :: Loving and Nonduality: When 1+1 = 1

Have you ever had a feeling-knowing that we are all one, and you are one with all?

Does that feeling-knowing include a strong awareness of the “One” — the Divine, the Beloved, God, the Goddess, Presence, Great Spirit, the Absolute...? Join us for an experiential and meditative day with Oneness, nonduality, love and the unknown.

In the days of October leading up to this session I will make posts on Facebook about Hindu, Buddhist and Sufi approaches to nondual understanding. Also about the Sufi mystic Hazrat Inayat Khan’s meme that we are always going toward the One. In the program on October 12th we will follow this up in an experiential and two meditations ...

Afternoon: 3:00—5:30 pm. We’ll start by looking at jnana and bhakti approaches to the One, then create images of oneness that speak to you, satisfy, intrigue or frustrate you. After a short break, we will do a practice of Opening the Heart.
Dinner break: 5:30—6:30 pm. During the dinner break, you’ll be invited to do a task, maybe something about looking for the Allness.
Evening: 7:00—9:00 pm. After dinner we’ll briefly share our task experiences, then move into a deep contemplation of the mystery. We’ll end with a quiet Sufi zikr.

Doors open at 2:30 p.m. for the afternoon session, 6:30 p.m. for the evening. People are on their own for dinner. Ticket options below; NoOneTurnedAway. We recommend attending both sessions.

There will be time for questions and suggestions for deeper inquiry; those who want to follow-up personally with Murshid Kiran and Jeanne Rana can arrange times to do so.
