Songs of the Soul: A Retreat into the Music of Life

Week 3D  August 6th–11th 2018
Group Retreat with Saki Lee and Latif Peter Brinck

“Music in the soul can be heard by the Universe…”

Lao Tzu

Retreat is an invitation to breathe and take a sacred pause into the silent spaces between the many notes of daily life – some which are dissonant, some which are beautiful, some which bespeak of our sorrow and pain for the condition of our world.

As we finely tune ourselves to the depths, expanse, breadth and heights of our soul’s songs, we are sung into the fullness of life’s sacredness. As we re-claim the sacred within the full spectrum of life’s music, meaning and creativity can be birthed in us and as us.

During this week’s retreat we meet in the morning to share sacred songs, spiritual practices and meditation.  The afternoons are for you to enter into the music of nature and the songs of your soul.  We come back together in the evenings for group zikhr.

Saki Lee

Saki Lee has been a student of Pir Vilayat Inayat Khan’s since 1974.  She has served in many roles in the Inayati Sufi Order but what ignites her soul’s joy the most is the Sufi alchemical retreat work and guiding others to find their soul’s music.  Besides her professional work in East Asian medicine, Saki works with various refugee projects and hosts monthly benefit world music concerts in Holland as a way to cultivate awareness of the Oneness that is beyond race, culture, religion and nation.

Latif Peter Brinck

Latif Peter Brinck will be supporting our retreat this week with an early morning meditation each day.  He will also be available for individual consultations each day for questions or clarification on the retreat process.  Latif is from Santiago, Chile, and has been a familiar friend and presence at our camp for many years as retreat guide and kinship representative.
