You are most welcome to join us to celebrate the Celtic festival of Samhain!
Samhain, All Souls, the Celtic New Year, is a time when the veil between the worlds grows thin. The Goddess takes the form of the Crone, the wise woman, and the earth moves into its darker, inward phase for rest and recuperation before rebirth. Come and join us in exploring these inward energies as we move towards winter. We will share Dances of Universal Peace, breath, walk and other meditation practices to drop within ourselves and together honour the joy and mystery of our shared cycle of transformation. The seeds of new beginnings lie within the death of the old.
This gathering forms part of a regular schedule of events which we are holding online during this time of pandemic. Every Tuesday at 19.30 UK time, and every Sunday at 11.00 UK time for around 90 minutes we will be sharing sacred chants and body prayers accompanied by beautiful live music on guitar and viola. These meditations involve our whole being, inviting us to experience connection with each other and with the divine. We teach all the words, chants and movements carefully each time, so beginners can easily join. The depth of peace and devotion that can be experienced, even on Zoom, often takes us all by surprise.
The Zoom link will be posted in our regular mail-outs, so do sign up to our email list to receive it, or if you prefer you can join our Messenger or WhatsApp groups by messaging us your details. We send regular reminders on these. The link for Jilani’s email list can be found here: https://mailchi.mp/23e2d0b4c247/jilanidancing
We offer these gatherings freely, however, it supports our work and our ability to provide for our family and home if you are able to offer us a donation. We ask in the region of £10/£5 for each of our online Sufi Group meetings, but no-one will be turned away for lack of funds.
Payment – via Paypal – paypal.me/theheartcentre (please leave the ‘Goods and Services’ button unchecked to avoid a charge being levied) Please use ‘Sufi Group’ as the reference.
Recent themes we have explored through ancient wisdom practices include Gratitude, Forgiveness, Loss, Fear, Devotion and Peace. Some of our gatherings are recorded and can be found on our YouTube channel https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCjQudDrGhHRF9tNXE00y0tw/videos?view_as=subscriber
