A Report on Harmony
A Reminder of our Open Gathering on Lama Mountain – June 21 – 27, 2006:
We are amidst a potentially momentous time of peace between our orders. This past April saw two separate meetings focusing on Peace and Reconciliation: In early April there was the meeting of the Federation of the Sufi Message in Holland, and in late April there was a Harmony meeting of the Ruhaniat and the Sufi Order in Madison, Wisconsin.
The meeting of the Federation of the Sufi Message in Holland was a genuine love feast of prayers, dance, walk, mutual recognition and respect. It was wonderful to see 4 of the branches present in a heart filled sharing mode. This bodes well for the future.
In addition, I am also very pleased by the warmth and loving attention which was paid to our pain and grievances by the members of the Sufi Order present at our Madison meeting. Alhamdulliah!
On Lama Mountain, with Murshid SAM as a “living witness,” we hope to pursue this path of peace and loving forgiveness. We shall use Murshid SAM’s statement “I am willing to work with anyone who is willing to work with me.” as a guide to our activities.
Please note that Lama 2006 is An Open Gathering. All beings who are interested in Spiritual Service, or healing in general are invited to join with us. Initiations will be offered where appropriate.
The Lama gathering will offer practices, prayers, rituals (both spontaneous & formal), walks, dances, visualizations, tea, zikrs, breathing practices, visualizations, bed time stories, Ram Nam, choir, great food, and our usual frolicking amongst the new trees. Plus, the retreat hut will be available for our usage.
We shall also resurrect our attunement to the 10 Sufi Thoughts of Hazrat Inayat Khan. These are original and essential statements of our lineage. It is astounding how succinct the Message is within these gems.
We shall, of course, also continue our training of Healing Conductors and Spiritual Healers.

Price for the full week – $350. All monies go to the Lama Foundation. Staff receives neither honorarium, nor reimbursement.
Finally, please continue to do the healing ritual, and include our Inayati family in the `known & unknown’ section. For if we cannot make peace with our brothers and sisters, then what hope is there for the world.
I send all my love and blessings and prayers for a peaceful heart.
See you on the Mountain.
Yours in Service to the Real,
