Golden Gate Sufi Circle: The 2020 Northern California Sufi Sesshin, preview

Save the date for our next Northern California Sufi Sesshin, to be held January 3rd - 10th, 2020. Registration will begin during the summer at this web site. Meanwhile we are posting photos (go there) and audio recordings (below) from this year's Sesshin.

ABOUT THIS EVENT: The format of this popular retreat, attended each year by devotees from across the US and internationally, is one of morning and afternoon sessions consisting of periods of sittng in silent meditation, alternating with active practice – such as sung zikr, Dances of Universal Peace and walking concentrations. In the evening there is also a Dharma Talk offered by one of our leaders. Most of these talks were recorded and are linked below. (NOTE: Recording quality was OK, not ideal.) Included are many responses from the audience and some succinct 'commentary' from our youngest retreatant.
