The 41st Annual Northwest Sufi Camp
August 12 – 19, 2018
Come kindle the spark of Divine Light dancing in our souls,
through zikr, turning, wazaif, walking in nature, dancing, singing,
and living in spiritual community.
Ananda Mariam Simmons and
Wakil David Matthews
Special Guest ~ Leilah Be
We invite you to come and dance with the only Being shining bright within your heart.
Through practices of remembrance let us awaken the Divine Light and Love that we know as God, Allah, Yahweh, Atman, Pure Mind, Wakan Tanka and all the other names known and unknown to the world.
Hazrat Inayat Khan tells us, “God is love; when love is awakened in the heart, God is awakened there”.
How do we awaken the heart? We awaken through zikr, through wazaif, through sacred singing and dancing in harmony, through meditation in nature, through polishing our hearts and minds in sacred sohbet, through meditation and contemplation of Oneness and many other sacred concentrations that will bless us during our time together.
Come for the first time or for the hundredth time and allow your Light to shine bright. One Love, One Light! Let’s dance with the Divine reflected in the form and the formless.
We come to remember what Meister Eckhart knew: “The eye through which I see God is the same eye through which God sees me; my eye and God’s eye are one eye, one seeing, one knowing, one love.”
Yours in the only Being,
Ananda Mariam Simmons and Wakil David Matthews
Only Being – Conduits of Light
That Illumined One
Who Keeps seducing the formless into form
Had the charm to win my Heart.
Only a perfect One
Who is always laughing at the word Two
Can make you know of
~ Hafiz ( Daniel Ladinsky)
