Uniting Inner and Outer

Sufi Conference
May 13 - 16, 2004
Black Mountain, North Carolina

The purpose of the Sufi Conference is to create a container for a spiritual energy, a frequency of divine love that is needed in the West for its spiritual evolution. This energy of divine love cannot be brought into life by any single Sufi order or teacher, but only when different orders and lovers of God are gathered together for the sake of the One, for the sake of the whole.

If the eye of the heart is open
In each atom there will be
one hundred secrets.

- Attâr


Within the heart everything is one. The lover aspires to live this unity, bringing together the inner world of the soul and outer world of forms. With each and every breath we realize the truth that "wheresoever you turn, there is the face of God."

Presenters will include Pir Zia Inayat Khan, Kabir Helminski, Camille Helminski, Imam Bilal Hyde, Khatiba Grais, Shahabuddin David Less, Ma Lynn Barron, Llewellyn Vaughan-Lee, and musicians Yusuf Mahmoud, Asif Mahmoud and Ashraf Sharif.
