The Invisible Offering
New Eden Retreat Centre, The Netherlands
September 1-5, 2021
In this retreat we will explore together ways to deepen and rest in the natural gift of awakening, allowing the invisible presence to offer itself to us and through us. We will explore silence, friendship, guided meditation, zikr (musical meditation), poetry, sohbet (mystical conversation) and other experiential practices. The venue is residential; all meals and refreshments will be provided. (The venue has plans in place should social distancing still be necessary in September 2021.) Full programme details and prices will be available early in the New Year. This early notice is to enable early booking in diaries.
Do contact us meantime if you are interested in participating:

A Sufi Way/Open Path Programme under the guidance of Pir Elias Amidon
Enter Into Silence
Walking retreat in the Moroccan desert
November 6-17, 2021
This walking retreat offers us an opportunity to experience how the vast emptiness and silence of the desert connects us with our own inner silence. As we walk into the desert, we are invited to leave behind our attachments, preoccupations and excessive activity, and orient ourselves to Presence.
Among other practices, there will be silent and singing meditations, zikr, evenings of poetry and story-telling. The main language will be English, translations into French, Dutch and German will be available. This retreat will be facilitated by Karim Noverraz and Elmer Koole, two experienced retreat leaders from the Sufi Way. Click here to view the programme overview.
This spiritual journey is a project in association with the Sufi Way and the Agence Désert et Montagne.
