A Silent Retreat with Saki Lee
Listen, My Voice is Within You
A Silent Retreat with Saki Lee, assisted by Latif Peter Brinck
Week 3D, August 7th – 13th, 2022
There is nothing in this world which does not speak. Everything and every being is continually calling out its nature, its character, and its secret; and the more the inner sense is open, the more capable it becomes of hearing the voice of all things
– Hazrat Inayat Khan
During these challenging and ever-changing times, we need to stay close to the simple things in nature, for She is a shelter for our souls, and a holy place where the divine is clearly visible and audible. We are welcomed into a precious circle of belonging with the whole of life and all living beings. Even if we enter nature’s sanctuary with burdened hearts, we can expect to leave with lighter footsteps!
To consciously create a pause from the uncertainties of outer life, spiritual retreat offers us a time-honored way to return to the essence of being and the purpose for which we have come to this life. We are renewed and nourished in body, mind and soul as we tune ourselves to the natural rhythm of nature, her awesome beauty and hospitality. As we deepen our alignment with the higher frequencies of light, love and life, the call of our soul becomes a clearer and more reliable source of guidance towards our life’s authentic calling.
After two years of absence, we are delighted to hold our retreat in the beautiful, sheltered retreat area of Zenith Camp, where people have come for over 30 years seeking the alchemical process of transformation.
Our retreat schedule includes morning sessions, during which we shar sacred music, silent meditation, and practices with breath, light and sound, exploring the dance between inner and outer life in the world. The afternoons will be on your own, allowing the splendor of Nature to unveil your own true nature. Suggested walking meditation practices as well as an opportunity to have a personal sitting with Saki and Latif will be offered. In the evening, we meet together again for sacred songs and zhikr.
This retreat is open to both newcomers as well as experienced travelers on the path of love, regardless of experience with Sufi practices.
Latif Brinck lives in Santiago, Chile and is Representative in the Sufi Order, a Retreat Guide and a Healing conductor. He has been in touch with the Sufi teachings for more than 30 years. His first Sufi retreats were in Chile with Pir Vilayat in 1993 and later with Shahabuddin Less.
He has attended the Zenith camp and has worked with Pir Zia, Munir and Saki Lee for the last 10 years, guiding Saki Lee´s morning meditations for the last 3 years. Currently he guides a meditation group and conducts other retreats and seminars.
He recommends a retreat for those wishing to stay in touch with their inner silence, by cutting their daily routine in the wonderful Swiss landscape.
“I love to accompany retreatants during the process and that they feel supported. Along with meditation the inside process is accompanied by zikr, hiking and prayers.”
Saki has been a presence in our Sufi camps since 1974 in Chamonix France. She has served as a retreat and personal guide in the Inayatiyya since 1991, a licensed practitioner of East Asian medicine since 1987 and an accredited conscious aging facilitator with The Institute of Noetic Sciences since 2015. Her passion and joy are to empower people to embody and unfold the fullness of all that they already are.
