About the Event
Are you looking for gatherings to feed your soul and heart? Do you want to experience life-changing moments of connecting to God in meditation, while reading spiritual texts, or while listening to deep spiritual motivational talks (mudhakara)? Are you looking for the opportunity to experience guided spiritual meditation? "Just as a drop of water, when it returns to its source, can affirm that in it resides all the riches of the ocean. It can now proclaim without lying that within it are hidden the most beautiful fish, corals, and treasures because it has returned to the ocean, it has melted into it. The ocean and the drop are now one. If it were to remain isolated, it would eventually evaporate and disappear." - Hamdi Ben Aissa You, too, can experience this, through the power of guided Islamic group meditation. Must RSVP to attend as location and time are subject to change WHAT TO EXPECT Welcome, all who are interested in this guided meditation.
