Download the invitation

Spirituality is the natural nobleness, and the unfoldment of the innate nobleness is spirituality,
a divine heritage which is hidden in every soul. Hazrat Inayat Khan

An alchemical retreat is a powerful tool of transformation; working with the ancient Sufi-practices of purification and tuning. Through purification, we can question old attitudes and patterns of behaviour. Through tuning, we reconnect with our soul and may find answers to the ever-returning questions: What are my highest ideals? How would I like to be? What is my life’s purpose?

Hazrat Inayat Khan gave 40 sentences for questioning our conscience and introduced thereby a tradition of spiritual chivalry; an essential part of the sufi path. Contemplating and applying chivalric qualities help us evolve as planetary citizens - caring for each other and for the planet.

This retreat is open to all who want to explore their inner being and share the company of others - in the temple and surroundings of Murad Hassil; a sacred place for wish fulfilment: www.soefitempel.nl/english We will share guided meditations, individual contemplations, silence, poetry and music. There will also be short conversations in pairs.
