NEW LIGHTSONG ONLINE CLASS SERIES
The Alchemy of The Heart
SEPTEMBER 2023 – JUNE 2024
Since 2015, Saki, has been giving a 9 month series of online Sufi classes as an ongoing support to spiritual travellers from over eighteen countries. These series of classes run from September through June each year. Once a month, registered participants receive a class with four sections. These classes can be listened to whenever you wish.
Each class consists of four sections that are 30-40 minutes each, and can be listened to separately:
- Section one: an early morning meditation with prayer, sacred music, and practices with breath, light, and sacred sound to start the day off on a good note!
- Section two: a monthly theme with Sufi teachings, guided meditation and relevant wazifa practice (a quality to contemplate in relation to your daily life)
- Section three: continuation of the monthly theme with a corresponding zhikr practice (mystical practice of remembrance)
- Section four: a shorter section with a musical interlude for deep relaxation
Besides these monthly 4 sections, which you can download and listen to whenever you wish, we also have a “live” monthly ZOOM class only for this group, as well as an open live ZOOM class to include our wider community. These are optional and sometimes recorded.
Our classes draw on the universal Sufi teachings of Hazrat Inayat Khan, Pir Vilayat Inayat Khan, and Pir Zia Inayat Khan. Spiritual teachings, sacred music and poetry from other mystical traditions are often included as well.
Our past series of classes have included: Tuning the Instrument; This Blessed Journey: Sufi Mysticism; Spirituality in Daily Life; The Alchemy of Transformation; The Art of Being and Becoming; Cultivating Inner Strength To Meet Life’s Challenges; Intuition and the Spirit of Guidance; The Heart of Sufism; Awakening the Human Spirit; and Heart, Self and Soul.
The next series of classes The Alchemy of the Heart will begin end of September 2023 and continue until mid June 2024.
To register, please go to Lightsong Inayatiyya online class series 2022-2023

THE MUSIC OF LIFE – CONNECTING HEARTS
OUR LIVE GATHERINGS IN THE NETHERLANDS
Change of Venue!
As a response to all that is challenging our global family today – including those who are suffering from poverty, displacement through war, social injustice and the effects of climate change and the corona pandemic, Lightsong Inayatiya has organized regular benefit concerts for specific projects including the Hope Project in India which Pir Vilayat Inayat Khan founded in the early 1980’s.
Our objective has always been to awaken hearts and raise awareness to what connects and unites us beyond the boundaries of race, color, religion, culture and nation. Through music and the creative arts, sharing potluck meals together, and meeting each other informally, we hoped to contribute to bringing a bit more beauty, kindness, peace and joy to our world.
We were happy to host many events at the Sufi Center Anna Paulownastraat 78, Den Haag for many years, including: music from the Mediterranean with Charis Laurijsen; Indian music concerts with Satyakam Mohkamsing (violin) and Ganesh Ramnath (tabla); dhrupad and Persian ghazal concert with singer Ilyas Nadjafi (Afghanistan) and Nathanael van Zuilen; Iranian storyteller Sahand Sahebdivan; Syrian dancer Ahmed Joudeh; Turkish music with Ali and Mehmet Ungan; Rumi poetry and Sufi music with Cengiz Arslanpay and Sipko den Boer…and many potluck dinners!
