8:00 pm - 10:00 pm
Heart Centre, Luddenden
Today is the Urs of Hazrat Inayat Khan, the 90th anniversary of the day he left the physical body. It feels an auspicious day to begin our series of monthly Zikr nights at the Heart Centre. Usually it will be on the first Tuesday of the month.
Zikr means remembrance. This Sufi practice invites us to remember our original and underlying state of unity with All-That-Is. Using body prayers – simple, gentle yet powerful movements – combined with chanting in Arabic, most commonly the Zikr phrase La illaha illa’llah (which could be translated ‘the only reality is Unity’, or ‘there is nothing except the One’), we celebrate Unity. Moving, chanting and breathing in rhythm together we begin to harmonise ourselves as individuals and as a group. Our bodies and hearts can realign with the rhythm of our souls. The result can be wonderful: we may experience sensations of devotion, peace and joy, heart-opening connections with others and a sense of oneness with all-that-is.
The group is open to all open hearted spiritual seekers.
We start promptly at 8 pm, in a comfortable and beautiful space at The Heart Centre, off Dean House Lane, Luddenden HX2 6RF. There will be time at the end for a cup of tea and a chat if you wish.
Cost is £10/£8/£5 according to your means. Please bring the correct change if possible, and place your money in the bowl as you arrive.
Please phone or email to find out directions if you have never been before. We very rarely cancel, but if you haven’t been for a while it may be worth checking it is on before travelling!
