       "My experience at the retreat was extraordinary & intense.  One song we danced to (a slow moving meditation) had the most beautiful words & motions, which brought me to tears: O Great Wave.   Our zikr chanting was so powerful that I was often totally blissed out!   The leader, Allaudin, allowed some local women to lead a dance now & then, which was a nice contrast.  My guitar playing friend Kathy, led a song she composed (with a little help), which is dynamically beautiful. I played cello along with her, & people raved about it!"        Clare

"The Dance on Saturday was special to me since I hadn't been to one since Batina passed from this realm.  I was especially pleased when so many remembered her smile that was my first attractor to her. I alway love the way we move around in the circle getting to be with everyone, hold their hands, smile, and move on to another."      Sh'mal
