Open to all members of the Inayati Order’s Jamiat Khas, comprised of the most experienced teachers and guides within the Order.

The Inayati Order’s Esoteric Training Committee invites you to join us for our annual Jamiat Khas Retreat, Tuesday, March 20 (evening with afternoon arrivals) through Thursday, March 22 (5 pm).

The meeting will be held at the Inayati Order’s new North American Headquarters, called the Astana, in Richmond, Virginia. Details about the Astana, travel to and from, accommodations and recommended restaurants can be found at www.inayatiorder.org/astana.

As always, the meeting will consist of a combination of spiritual practices in the morning (this year drawing on Pir Vilayat’s Curriculum of the Sufi Order), with a focused discussion in the afternoon. The latest schedule may be found within Dropbox.

The Jamiat Khas Annual Retreat is a wonderful time for fellowship and to share our collective attunement. There is a great power generated by our being together and meditating with each other.

During this training, we will be exploring practices and perspectives relating to the soul’s journey through the planes of being, emphasizing the interpenetration in the soul’s experience of the human, djinn, and angelic worlds.

Our annual Inayati Order Leadership Spring Training will follow March 22-25, 2018.
