Power of Love
A Sufi Conference
October 14 - 16, 2005
at the Omega Institute
Rhinebeck, New York
Love is the Greatest Power
-- Sufi Saying
To the Ones who really see,
The Chosen Lovers,
Love is a shattering Eternal Light.
Sufism is a celebration of
the love affair between the soul and God. The path of the Sufi is
a journey that draws us into longing and ecstasy, into the passion
and power that is within the heart. This love that is awakened in
the heart also belongs to the core of creation, and is our greatest
gift to life.
The Sufi Conference brings together different Sufi orders and lovers
of God as an expression of oneness and love. 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. Through lectures, meditation, dreamwork, dance, music,
and zhikr we will share in this mystical tradition. We will be present
in the heart’s remembrance of God and help to bring His light
into the world.
Presenters will include Pir Zia Inayat Khan, Shaykha Fariha al-Jerrahi,
Mata Lynn Barron, Llewellyn Vaughan-Lee, and guest speaker Peter Kingsley.
