Time in the Zawiyyah with Nura and Wadude Laird
October 25, 2019 @ 12:30 pm - October 27, 2019 @ 3:00 pm PDTDonation
“As salaam alaykum, everyone. During Ramadan we were inspired to schedule more personal time at the Mother Center in Pope Valley for the nourishment and healing so readily available there. We envision this as spending time in the zawiyyah, reading and writing Sidi’s books, reciting dhikr and Qur’an, etc.
A part of each day may be spent helping out in any non-strenuous work projects that may be ongoing at the Center. We intend to stay for four days most months, Thursday-Sunday, depending on other events scheduled there and on our own schedule. Our next dates are (revised due to planned power outages) Oct 25-27.
We invite anyone to join us for a day, a few days, or the full three or four days. We welcome our brothers and sisters from our local community, as well as anyone else in the tariqa or anyone who is interested in doing a retreat in this way.
We have no intention of LEADING these retreats or TEACHING classes, so if you are moved to join us, then you will be joining and SHARING your retreat with us.
We will bring our own food and those who join us will be expected to do the same. We will share meals and meal prep as appropriate. Finally, we will clean up our rooms and common spaces every time before we leave the Mother Center, and we will make a donation to the Center for this wonderful opportunity.
We welcome everyone who is moved to share this with us. Please contact me directly if you plan to come for one (or more) of our scheduled retreats. You will need to reserve a room through the SSC: REGISTER
