The Music of the Soul: Deepening the Teachings Online Event is a fundraiser to support Unity Peace Prayer’s effort to carry Sidi’s vision of the flag of unity over every home. Unity Peace Prayer beloveds are fundraising for a Shadhiliyya Sufi event – featuring Sufi teachers, musicians, artists and healers–in Washington DC, in 2020, inshaallah. Fundraising will first retire remaining debt from 2018 Unity Peace Prayer event and begin planning for 2020.
“With the rising of the moon of deep understanding in the horizons of the unity, it becomes possible to witness the nearness of the Truth (al-Haqq). When the sun of knowledge rises on the horizons of singularity, certainty gains strength, and the face of witnessing looms.”
-Sidi Shaykh Muhammad Sa’id al-Jamal ar-Rifa’i ash-Shadhuli
