Saul In Scotland

Mastery of Everyday Life:
Sufi Workshop on Breath, Magnetism, Heart and Healing
with Murshid Saul Barodofsky; assisted by Saadi Neil Douglas-Klotz

September 20-21 — Saturday and Sunday — 10am-5pm
Kirkcaldy, Scotland (nr Edinburgh)

IMG_2414This two-day workshop will include chant, meditation, breath practice, walking meditation, movement and other active tools to help one build magnetism and meet the challenges of everyday life. These tools allow one to become a channel for healing for oneself and others. Practices will be drawn from many world traditions, as it is the Sufi way to see unity in all spiritual paths.

Saul will also share what the Sufis call baraka or heartblessing through his telling of stories about his travels worldwide and his time with various spiritual teachers and healers. Saul is the spiritual director of the Dervish Healing Order and an original student of Murshid Samuel Lewis (1896-1971), the founder of the Dances of Universal Peace. Saadi Neil (author of The Sufi Book of Life) will assist him by sharing some of these circle dances, which raise life energy for self-healing. This is the first UK workshop led by Murshid Saul, who is from the USA.

This two-day, non-residential workshop is open to all and sponsored by the Edinburgh Institute for Advanced Learning ( and the East Scotland Ruhaniat Sufi Community with support from the Edinburgh International Centre for Spirituality and Peace (
