The Alchemy of Happiness

Week 2A  July 30th–August 4th 2018
Community Retreat with Pir Zia Inayat-Khan

In this weeklong retreat, Pir Zia will lead a silent journey through the stations of spiritual alchemy, traversing the interior landscapes that stretch from the obscurity of the unexamined life to the “fragrant gold” of the soul’s self-realization, which is the essence of happiness. Meditation, invocation, and sacred music will interlace to evoke ever subtler and vaster domains of being.

For this program a supplement of CHF 85 or € 75 is to be added to the “base price”
