Dear Friends,
Tomorrow is Zikr day! Hip-hip-Hurray!
Come on out! Shaping up to be a sweet evening of singing, moving, praising, remembering, attuning, connecting and diving into The One!

Zikr – Saturday, November 18th – 7 PM – 1939 S Monroe St, Denver – I’ll be facilitating the evening with joy in my heart – NOTE: after our usual zikr-ings, we’ll share treats and conversation in the zikr hall, seated in a lovely circle. This is a new experiment for our community and I encourage y’all to participate! Sharing Zikr is a powerful experience and the opportunity to continue our time with intentional conversation, shared space, being with each other to share stories, questions, and spiritual adventures is valuable. Let’s take advantage of it.

This month, after we’ve done all our singing and moving and groovin’ (as we do), we’ll keep our seated treat circle in the Zikr hall so we can continue our conversation time in the yummy vibe of the Zikr… the idea is to take advantage of our beautiful monthly opportunity to have deeper, richer, more nourishing, spiritual, enlivening, meaningful, heartful conversations… let’s do it! If two or three of you, dear friends, would like to help us hold and facilitate this space more actively, I’d love to have some support with this. Let me know.
