The Water of Life with Pir Zia Inayat Khan


The Water of Life
Tucson, Arizona
November 17-19, 2017

Saturday 9-5 pm & Sunday 9-4 pm with a special dinner and discussion with Pir Zia, Friday evening from 6-9 pm.

Please come and join us for a unique opportunity in Tucson to enjoy two days of deep exploration of the Water of Life. What is this Water? We know that drinking physical water quenches the thirst of the body. Similarly, the thirst of the subtle body is met by absorbing the celestial energy that flows through space, while the soul seeks to imbibe the pure substance of spirit, the Water of Life. How can one experience this?  Pir Zia encourages us to partake of this Water in its several dimensions through practices of meditation, discourse, zikr (remembrance) and prayer, following the clues left in the teachings of his grandfather, the Sufi teacher Hazrat Inayat Khan, who founded the organization in 1910 that has become what is now known as the Inayati Order.
