The mystic sees on the abstract plane one or other element predominating at a certain time, either ether, air, fire, water or earth. Every element in the finer forces of life is rendered intelligible by the direction of its activity and color; and the various forms of light show its different rates of activity.
– Hazrat Inayat Khan

For as long as mystics, of any tradition, have lived, so has spiritual work with the elements. One of the rare consistencies evident in spiritual practice, throughout the globe, is an honoring and acknowledgement of the elements and their integration into various traditions of divinity; this is because they are an undeniably essential tool of discovery.

This workshop will explore breath, sound, movement, rhythm, emotion and presence through spiritual work with the elements. Sufi teachings on breath and healing relative to the elements will be explored. The group will be encouraged to dance and sing their way through the clearing of blocked channels.

As we venture through these practices, we will do writing exercises that explore wild mind and channeled poetry (inspired by the ways that Rumi, Hafiz, and others wrote). Participants will leave with their own poetic expressions of what they can access by clearing the pathways to the source of omnipotent love.

Cost: $30
