Monthly Online Gatherings
for spiritual Nourishment & Fellowship
Many of us are looking for a sense of spiritual community and fellowship. Community is often best shaped face to face, heart to heart. And yet many of us have also found a sense of connection with like-minded and like-hearted friends from around the world. We hope that these monthly gatherings, “Chai, Love, and Prayer” will nourish your heart and soul, and give you a sense of real fellowship.
Pull up a chair, and bring your favorite cup of chai (coffee, etc). Bring your heart. Bring your soul. Bring the fullness of your light. There is no “preparation” necessary. Come when you can, come as you are.
These live sessions are free-standing, so you do not need to have previously signed up for any of our Illuminated Courses. The content and practices are deeply grounded in the heart of the Islamic tradition, yet the fellowship is open to friends of all backgrounds.
Chai, Love, and Prayer. As lovely as it sounds. <3Sign up Now
Let us gather for
1 hour / month*
usually the third Saturday of each month at 2 pm EST
The next dates are:
July 30th, 2022
August 27th, 2022
*(or a bit more than 1 hour ☺ )
We will begin by listening to sacred music.
Omid will share some teachings from the spiritual tradition of Islam in a gentle form called "Sohbet".
We will give you an opportunity to share in small group fellowship with fellow seekers. We will all practice the "adab" of fellowship: honoring one another by receiving each other's lived experiences and insights. We are not here to guide or correct one another, but simply to witness, honor, and receive one another as we are.
And we will wrap up with a simple meditation (dhikr / zekr) practice. The practices we will guide you to do come out of the heart of the Islamic tradition, and will touch on the life-transformative teachings of the Qur'an, Rumi, and illuminated sages....
