SUFI HEALING CIRCLES
In Sufi practices, and particularly Sufi healing practices, our intention is to touch and manifest divine qualities which are always living within us. The Universe is filled with healing power! About the Sufi Healing Circle: read more/lessMurshid Samuel Lewis often quoted Sufi Al-Ghazzali, saying "Sufism is based on experience and not on premises." So in our healing circles are experiential, using breath, sound, contemplation and prayer to open and experience hidden treasures such as purification, compassion and healing power which are in our True Nature; and we perform the Absent Healing ritual of Hazrat Inayat Khan to send healing light to others.
