The Seven Sisters – The Teachings of Hazrat Inayat-Khan
Week 1A July 19th – 25th 2020
Seminar with Pir Zia Inayat-Khan
The Inner School, Kinship, Universal Worship, Ziraat, Healing, the Knighthood of Purity, and Music are the Pleiades of the Inayatiyya, our sevenfold constellation for navigating the sea of life.
The Inner School teaches the way of silence and remembrance. Kinship investigates the interrelatedness of all beings. Universal Worship unveils the single hierohistory that encompasses the revelations of all ages. Ziraat communicates the sanctity of the earth. Healing transforms suffering through spiritual realisation with prayer, light and breath. The Knighthood elucidates the contours of the awakened conscience. Music nourishes the soul with invisible beauty.
Hazrat Inayat Khan said, “Life is not only to live, but also to ennoble oneself and reach that perfection which is the innate yearning of the soul.”
In this week of meditation, discourse, conversation, and audition, we will rededicate our lives to the sacred purpose for which we were born.
For this program a supplement of CHF 85 is to be added to the “base price”.
