Grapes Into Wine

42nd Annual Northwest Sufi Camp
Cedar Ridge Retreat Center, Vernonia, OR
Monday, August 12-Sunday, August 18, 2019

Amidst the company of traveling companions and within the beauty of nature, come for the first time, or return again, as we Eat, Dance and Pray in the glorious lineage teachings of Hazrat Inayat Khan and Murshid Samuel L. Lewis. This year’s theme of Transformation invites each of us to taste the wine of practice and community, leading us into the Sweet Love Wine of our true being. Northwest Sufi Camp’s summertime family camp gathers us once again in the Circle of Love in wonderful Northern Oregon, USA.

See you in August, 2019
