The Practice of the Symbol

Hollow Reed School, 93 Sedgwick St., Jamaica Plain, MA

Sunday, Sep. 23rd, 2018, 3:00 - 5:00 PM

The Heart and Wings is an illustration which Pir-O-Murshid Hazrat Inayat Khan used to symbolize the Sufi movement which was established in the early 1900's. Pir Zia Inayat-Khan, his grandson, and head of the Inayati order has developed a practice inspired by this beloved symbol. He wishes all Teachers and Murids in the Inayati order to know this practice. We will gather together and share in the many aspects of the practice which includes Wazaif (sacred sound), visualization, and thematic elements. A beautiful booklet of the practice will be offered at the completion of the class. All who are sincerely interested in the practice but are not Murids are also welcome. We will also continue this practice in the ongoing Sema gatherings.

Please R.S.V.P. Naima Khabira Brown at inayatiorder if you plan to attend.

Donations to defray the cost of the booklets will be gratefully accepted!
