Opposites Attract – Audio Recordings
Community Retreat with Pir Zia Inayat Khan
God is known in the coincidence of the opposites.
– Abu Sa’id al-Kharraz
The inner and the outer, the needs of self and other, the imperatives of love and freedom: these are a few of the many polarities that compose our lives. The path to the One does not lead to the abolishment of the contraries that are inherent in creation. Rather, it reveals ever more elegant weavings of the opposites.
In this five day long silent retreat, Pir Zia will lead a silent journey through the stations of spiritual alchemy, traversing the interior landscapes that stretch from the obscurity of the unexamined life to the “fragrant gold” of the soul’s self-realization. We will use breath, sound, and contemplation to find a balance that excludes nothing and harmonizes everything.
