Recordings from “Ishq Retreat” with Imam Bilal in Ohio April 2014

doubleHu-konya-mediumAs Salaam alaykum. Imam Bilal gave a three day retreat in Ohio in April. Here is the information from the flyer:

"Traditional Sufi meditation practices, rarely offered to the general public. This powerful and transformative technique opens the doors of the mystical heart, one at a time, to the light of divine love (`ishq Allah). Sufi meditation focuses on training and refining the ego-self, using visualization, concentration, directed breath practice, and prayer. These practices develop in stages, unveiling the subtlest levels of the innermost heart, the seat of wisdom, insight, and compassion for all life. The results of this healing process are deeply rewarding, spiritually and practically. As the mystical heart opens to divine love, we encounter our true reality. Imam Bilal is co-author of Physicians of the Heart: Sufi Guidebook to the 99 Beautiful Names Of Allah with Murshid Wali Ali and Pir Shabda Kahn of the Sufi Ruhaniat International, and Faisal Muqaddam, co-creator of the Diamond Approach. This retreat is open to all."
