July Zikr / Sufi Day

Dear DiAnahita,      Thank you for guiding & holding the Twilight Zikr Circle, gently & firmly in the heart of love & Sufi wisdom, as you created & nurtured deepening our spiritual connection within, in Nature, with each other & Towards the One.

Greg masterfully & heartfully led Sunday's  Qigong.

Another moment of magic & grace -- Friday's deluge of rain bringing  a beautiful Rainbow in your front yard!  Truly blessed!     Sukaynah


Wonderful Zikr evening... The songs & the dancers seemed to co-mingle. Thanks for  teaching me to be a better dance Musician.  I love playing for your dances...

          Love & light to you,  Kathy

I'm still floating the next morning! What a balm & boost for my spirit to share in the deepening experience of Twilight Zikr. It feels especially significant to have inaugurated the newborn "Ya Aziz."   Blessings  both to you & to Maitreya.      Love, Barclay


Thank you as usual Diana for your wonderful teaching.  It was a fabulous night & wonderful to see everyone!       - Konnie


Thanks so much for all your help with my locked car, especially since you were busy preparing for the zikr. There's nothing like zikr & friends to help one forget one's problems.     - Nancy
