Weekend Sufi Meditation Event Explores the Inner Life
Pir Zia Inayat-Khan
The Inayati Order of Greater Boston will present Know Thyself: An Exploration of the Within during the weekend of December 2 at the Dante Alighieri Society, in Cambridge. Pir Zia Inayat-Khan, president and spiritual leader of the Inayati Order, will guide this journey of inner exploration.
“This is a precious opportunity to be guided by Pir Zia Inayat-Khan, a deeply adept international spiritual teacher who is in the Boston area for this one weekend only,” says Publicity Coordinator Hermione Garland. “He follows in the Sufi lineage of his grandfather, Hazrat Inayat Khan.”
The event begins at 7:30 p.m. with a free public talk, Exploring the Sufi Path, that probes the path’s meaningfulness for everyday life and its promise for troubled times. The workshop on December 3 and 4 takes place from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., and includes stories, sacred sound and breath practices, and the experience of contemplation and meditation. Participants will explore the peace of the inner self and its wisdom.
Cost: $35-$240. Location: The Dante Alighieri Society, 41 Hampshire St., Cambridge. For information and registration, call 617-522-0800, email KnowThyself@GardenLight.org or visit InayatiOrder.GardenLight.org.
