CULTIVATING INNER STRENGTH FOR LIFE’S CHALLENGES TODAY

Our next series of Online classes with Saki will begin in mid February 2017 and run until the summer break in mid June 2017.  The theme is on Cultivating Inner Strength for Life’s Challenges Today, and draws upon the teachings of Hazrat Inayat Khan, Pir Vilayat Inayat Khan and Pir Zia.  Here you will find out what is involved and how to register:

Many people from around the world have joined our last three courses.  After receivingg much positive feedback from participants, we’ve now decided to open up this course to our wider Sufi community.  We hope that this next series of five monthly classes may serve as a source of ongoing spiritual support and connection with the teachings, practices and community of spiritual travellers.

The format of the classes is somewhat similar to how Saki guides retreats:  There are musical attunements, prayers, sacred poetry, guided meditation and Sufi practices with breath, light, wazaif and zhikr that support the specific teachings given.

Each month we place 4 separate audio files on our closed site for which you are given a secret password.   You can either listen online or download each of the sections whenever you wish.  You need not listen to them all at once and you are never “behind.”

Each section is approximately 30 minutes long:

  • a  morning attunement with sacred music, prayer and meditation to start the day
  • 2 sections on specific themes, with sacred music, mystical poetry, prayer, and  Sufi l practices which are related to the central themes presented.
  • one section called “Mystic Relaxation” with quiet music to relax and unwind

In addition, readings from the Sufi teachings of Hazrat Inayat Khan which relate to our monthly classes will be available for you to download.

Each week, a follow up e-mail will be sent to you.  These are usually brief reflections for you to stay connected with the themes and practices of the month, and might include a poem or a question to carry with you throughout the week.

All of the classes remain available online until the next course begins in September.

You will also be able to access a private Facebook group which is a closed and safe group for you to share with others in the course.    Although not everyone might wish to join this, it is an option that some participants have enjoyed.

A new feature for this next online series is the possibility to join in once or twice with a small group of 10 people on Skype with Saki.  More information on this will be given after you’ve registered.

And throughout the course, any questions or concerns concerning the practices may be addressed individually to Saki, and any technical questions may be addressed to our webmaster.

The costs for the classes are kept low and affordable.   For the entire five months, you may choose to pay one of the following according to your income:

€70, – or €85 – or €100.   However, as these classes are offered to all genuine seekers, nobody has been excluded from these classes due to finances.  And we welcome all inquiries if other financial arrangements need to be made.

If you would like to register for this online class, please send a short note of introduction to Saki at lightsong@gmail.com  and you will be sent details of registration.

We look forward to hearing from you!
