43rd Annual Northwest Sufi Camp

Cedar Ridge Retreat Center, Vernonia OR

Sunday August 2 – Saturday August 8, 2020

All are called to Shine their Light
JOY Peace LOVE Kindness MERCY
are needed more than ever
by our Mother Earth and all her creatures

This year’s emphasis will be on skills you can take home with you to recharge
and keep your balance, and the many new rays emerging like the birth of a star.
Come for friendship and community, surrounded by old forest.
Come for joy and music!  I’m excited about this camp,
and I hope you’ll join us! See you there!
