Wheel of Fortune

Beloved Community, 
According to the Pagan calendar, we are officially in AUTUMN!!! Yay! Woohoo! Starting to see the first clumps of yellow leaves, evening air giving a hint of chill. The Earth reminds us to celebrate all we’ve got while we’ve got it with the growing awareness that all is temporary and therefore more precious.
Let’s sing and dance and pray about it.

Friday, August 7th – Dance, Chant, Pray – 7 PM Mountain (1 AM Saturday UTC) – Bring your best Zoom camera, your dancing shoes, your vocal cords and beautiful heart… – Deborah Ogden will be here to drum, Rahima will be here to sing and dance with us…plus, you and me!

Y’all, lemme tell you, we are so fortunate to have Khabir’s friendship, wisdom and humor to inspire and guide us! For this second edition of Unveiling the Beloved, we’ll turn our attention from the outer veils to the inner. Our Zoom session will be two hours, then we’ll go straight into our daily 15-minutes of prayers. 10 AM Mountain time (4 PM UTC) – On the Zoom! https://zoom.us/j/505295922

Friday, August 28th – Chant, Dance, Pray – 7 PM Mountain (1 AM Saturday, UTC) – Probably with Deborah and Rahima bringing the beauty! – Zoom! https://zoom.us/j/505295922

Daily Prayer Practice – EVERY SINGLE DAY – Yep. We’re still going strong! 15 minutes of Sufi Prayers – 12 PM Mountain (6 PM UTC) – Zooming! – https://zoom.us/j/505295922 – It continues to be a sweet, daily prayer supplement for many of us tuning in each day! We always include some prayers, breaths, melodic Zikr, and usually a wazifa practice. Join in anytime!

GIFT TO YOU: I’ve been catching sound recordings of our daily 5-minute melodic Zikr. They are on my website and you can go download all the MP3s from my dropbox! Here’s the link: https://trigoddess.org/music/

 The Fall Sufi Retreat continues to hinge on the statewide guidelines for public health and safety. Right now, we’re good to go! If this changes, all registered participants will be refunded in full. Please get in touch with Rahima (registrar extraordinaire) if you have questions.

Beloved Friends, 
I reckon a lot of us continue to be challenged to seek our own equanimity, make sense of our surroundings, and look for useful ways to help heal the world.
