Event description

Description

Love and nonduality are two faces of the same mystery. Our experience in the world is alive with love: kindness, empathy, compassion, passion, ecstasy, devotion, friendship, intimacy, caregiving, playfulness, kinship, mercy, grief, forgiveness, gratitude, blessing, service. Sufis recognize that these forms of love sustain and illuminate our world. They are also the living expression of the nondual presence that is the ground of all being.

Many of us have glimpsed this presence when we were children, or in moments of ecstatic love, spiritual practice, or psychedelic experience. This radiant awareness is not something outside of us: it is utterly inclusive, beautiful, spontaneous and natural.

In this workshop, we will explore together how we may deepen our capacity to love, to be open to presence while fully engaging with life’s beauty, difficulties, and sorrows. We will ask what obstructs our capacity to love, and what is unnecessary in how we define our selves and our world.

We will ask love to show us what matters.

The gatherings will weave together experiential exercises, talks and discussion, guided meditations, movement, body prayers, and musical zikr. All are welcome.

Pir Elias Amidon is the spiritual director (Pir) of the Sufi Way (www.sufiway.org), a non-sectarian mystical school in the lineage of Sufi Inayat Khan, dedicated to spiritual awakening and friendship.

Murshid Kiran Rana was born and raised in India. At the Bay Dervish Center in Alameda, California, he and his wife Jeanne hold regular gatherings for conversation, zikr and qawwali, and offer personal guidance.
