Dance & Sufi Retreat:
Deeper into the Heart of Love

with Leilah & Bodhi Be
Thursday-Sunday, October 28-31, 2010
at Dancing Peacock Paradise, Florida


Additional information for Retreat participants

Bodhi, a sheikh in the Sufi Ruhaniat International, leads practices & meditation, & accompanies dances & zikr on the dumbek. Bodhi's presence nurtures the deepening of our inner life, with spaciousness, quiet, authenticity, & good humor. He brightens every day with a winning smile, seeing everyone's divinity.

Bodhi is an end-of-life counselor, affirming dignity & spirituality throughout life, who is doing cutting edge research & activities like hosting retreats with Ram Dass & setting up Doorway Into Light, a non-profit, spiritually based educational organization.

Leilah, a murshida in the Ruhaniat, has been called "the most eminent female zikr leader in the world." She receives international invitations to travel widely to share her knowledge of the Sufi path, & to lead zikr & dances.

Leilah's quiet, unassuming presence radiates love for everyone, & sets the example for harmony & beauty in community. Her zikrs range from subtle to exuberant, carrying the group to deep connection with each other & the Divine, & to states of equanimity or ecstasy. We are indeed blessed that this couple has agreed to come all the way from Hawaii to be with us.
