Dearest Diana,
Thank you for all you do, all you bring!  As for the GRC, selfishly we would love to have you back (June 5). I feel such a kindred connection to what you are doing & the lovely people of all ages who participate.  It would be my honor to put more energy into spreading the word & getting a nice crowd here. 
      With tons of love & gratitiude,  Shana

From a previous Healing Dance...

This month's theme of Healing was ideal for me...and obviously perfect for others as well.  I always like the healing circle experience & last night it was especially powerful. Your facilitation felt just right to me...down to earth & inspiring.             Barclay

Florida Fall Sufi & Dance Retreat
Beloved Sufi Ruhaniat Teachers Murshida Leilah & Sheikh Bodhi Be will share their wisdom, love, presence & practices.   Details to come ~ from Sukaynah Holly: holly@thc-hal.com
"The dances bring an experience of praying & dancing in celebration of diversity & in honor of the unity of all creatures.  

I'm not going into any theology unless we experience it.  Because if you listen to me now with your ears, we're still in thought. So I give these walks & dances so you can listen with your whole body." 
Samuel Lewis
Dervish Healing Order
Affiliated with Sufi Ruhaniat International

‘Oh Divine Healer, O Divine Remedy’
‘The healing power of God, 
the all-pervading life'

He kehau, He kehau
Ho ‘o ma ‘ay ma ‘ay
Ho ‘o ma ‘ay ma ‘ay
Ke aloha,  Ke aloha
Al-Jabbar is a healing strength that sets things straight.   It is the mender of our fractured existence.
This wazifa inspired DiAnahita's song
Al Jabbar, Al Jabbar, Al Jabbar,
Al Jabbar.
Heal our wounds, Set our bones.
Mend our hearts, Restore our hopes.
May you be Safe,  May you be Happy,

May you be Healthy,  May you know Peace.

Solar Eclipse & the Night of Lord Shiva
     According to Vedic Astrology, the March 8 Solar Eclipse has the power to transform karmic patterns and liberate us from toxic entanglements
     The Hindu holiday "The Great Night of Shiva” falls on the prior evening. On this night, the thin sliver of waning moon, which Shiva wears in his hair, will  rise before dawn.
     It is said that Lord Shiva can reduce the bonds of negative habits & beliefs to ashes with a single glance, & that prayers & offerings to him have the power to alter the laws of destiny & break karmic ties. Repeating the mantra "Om Namah Shivaya," can accelerate the transformative process  sparked by this eclipse, and clear away negative karma & enhance the ability to create acts of beauty, courage, kindness & compassion so powerful it can heal our ailments.

"Peace, Salaam, Shalom!"
