The Zenith camp was founded by Pir Vilayat Khan as a place for seekers of
truth to retreat from the speed and demands of life and find, in the beauty
of nature, a space to awaken to the essence of life, gain insights and
understandings and develop friendships that would enable us to live fuller
and more creative lives.
At the heart of the Zenith camp is a vision for spiritual liberty for
our souls and for us to create as Pir Vilayat Inayat said “a beautiful
world full of beautiful people.”
>>History of the Camp, written by Zahir Roehrs
After 40 years some of the reasons that people from all over the world
are attracted to come here time and time again might be:
• The Message of Universal Sufism as developed by the Sufi Mystic Hazrat Inayat Khan. He said of the message: “It does not bring theories or doctrines to add to those already existing, which puzzle the human mind. What the world needs today is the message of love, harmony, and beauty, the absence of which is the only tragedy of life.”
• "Music is the religion of the future", Hazrat Inayat Khan said. To this day, the Camp attracts many different musicians from many different traditions. It is our joy and focus, to give them space so that we all may enjoy, learn and make music together
• Being part of a community - whether it is building the camp during the work camp or participating in the camp - our aim is to develop a space where you can feel at home and part of a group of friends.
• Our beautiful space for group and individual retreats in the magnificient nature of the swiss alps. During the four weeks of the program you will be guided through a deep transformational process to discover anew who you truly are.
We hope you will join us, participating in one of the workshops, helping
us build the camp or even by coming to the take down of the camp where we return the land to nature.
