The Song of the Heart

A Sufi Conference

October 6 - 8, 2006
at the Omega Institute
Rhinebeck, New York



The breath of the morning wind
will soon spread the fragrance of musk,
And the world will become
young again.



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 heart contains the deepest secret of creation and the mystery of our love. When we sing the song of the heart we bring together the inner and outer worlds, and infuse our love for God into every moment of the day, into every atom and every thought. We help the world come alive with love.

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, Maata Lynn Barron, Imam Bilal Hyde, Llewellyn Vaughan-Lee, and guest speaker Peter Kingsley.
