The Way of Compassion, October 2020 Weekend Online Retreat

Our Retreat was attended by some 25 people, friends old and new, and far more than could have been accommodated in our usual annual non-residential retreat, which has highlighted the opportunities that working online offers us. Material from the sessions on Compassion and Mindfulness, and on Forgiveness are available on this website – click here. Please take a look if you weren't able to join us on retreat, and if you were, you may want to use the practices again.  

Residential Retreat at Kinnersley Castle, Herefordshire

O joy that seekest me through pain . . .  

Residential Retreat at Kinnersley Castle, Herefordshire

Guided by Hadia Little with Sajeda and Karim Hope and NurJamil Parsons 

The Light of Healing reveals itself through darkness, like the stars in a night sky. In retreat, we shall seek ways of keeping our hearts open and compassion flowing in the depths of personal and collective suffering, reaching beyond tears to the rapture of wholeness and unity.

Story, chant, song, dance, music, poetry and practices from our Sufi and other traditions will carry us through the stages of the retreat process. We will spend time in silence and in nature. We will ‘trace the rainbow through the rain’ and reach through to that sacred place where ‘all shall be well, all manner of thing shall be well’.

'Consciously or unconsciously, all beings are capable of healing themselves or others.’ - Hazrat Inayat Khan

Hadia’s backround is in teaching and teacher education. She joined the Sufi (Inayati) Order in 1998, is a Suluk graduate and a Representative and has guided the Cotswold group for more than a decade. She is a Conductor in the Inayati Healing Order and, with Nur Jamil, has led the non-residential retreat for several years. She is a practitioner of Spiritual Healing with touch, sound, light and colour.

The Wounded Healer

Transforming Woundedness into Light – a 2-day non-residential healing retreat

Led by Amin Dilly  

26/27 October 2019

“There are hearts which have been exposed to fire for a long, long time, and there comes a sulfury water from them, purifying and healing; for it has gone through fire, it has gone through suffering, and therefore it heals those who suffer.” (Hazrat Inayat Khan)

Woundedness is a state many of us feel in life at times. We may also witness pain and brokenness around us. Yet, in the midst of this brokenness there is wonder and beauty. There is a power for healing deeply rooted in our wounding, our fragility; a healer at the core of our being that we can call upon. This weekend through Sufi practices using breath and sound, the teachings of Hazrat Inayat Khan and pieces of music as well as the alchemical retreat process, we will connect with our inner self and get in touch with that spirit of healing within us.

Amin Dilley is a Conductor in the Inayati Healing Order. He is also a Representative, Guide and Retreat Guide in the Inayati Order.

“I see as clear as daylight that the hour is coming when woman will lead humanity to a higher evolution” - Hazrat Inayat Khan

Using Sufi practices, storytelling, music and poetry, we will re-examine the myth of the Garden of Eden, seeking to heal the ravages wrought in women and men and our planet by an age-old image of Eve, revealing Eve as the motive force of new consciousness.
