Experiencing The Divine Presence

Odyssey Community School, Asheville, North Carolina

Experiencing the Divine Presence is led by Himayat Inayati.

In this era of rapidity and ever more alienation, the need to awaken to and experience the Divine Presence is ever more needed. This weekend will be an intensive of Sufi practice and teaching intended to amplify this Presence within each participant.

Come . . . no matter how many times you have broken your vows .  .  . for this is not a caravan of despair!  Rumi

Although we only have two days together, the emphasis will be on a retreat like atmosphere accentuated by in-depth practice.


Himayat has been a member of the Sufi Order International since 1972, receiving the sacred transmission of Pir Vilayat Inayat Khan and Murshid Samuel Lewis. Himayat was the international head of The Sufi Healing Order for twenty years. He has been a catalytic figure in the on-going dialogue between science, spirituality, and healing – organizing twenty-six conferences in support of this dialogue. The founder of The Raphaelite Work, a method of healing and transformational process rooted in Sufism and updated by modern psychology and body work, Himayat has taught mysticism and spirituality in fourteen different countries.  He is the founder of Universal Awakening, www.universal-awakening.org . Himayat’s teaching is lucid, accessible, and humorous, orienting the ancient mystical teaching of the major world spiritual traditions toward solutions of contemporary issues.
