Next Gathering: Estag’firullah Zikr

Monday February 6th
7:30pm
Odd Fellows Hall in Ballard
1706 NW Market Street
Seattle, WA 98107

The Estag’firullah Zikr is intended to be a spiritually healing prayer experience.  Estag’firullah is taken from the Arabic Ghafûr , one of the traditional Names of God meaning “the pardoner, the forgiver.”  We invoke Estag’firullah to ask for forgiveness for every breath we have taken without remembering the divine unity of this reality.

We sing, whirl, and dance together in prayer to help each other polish our hearts, clarify our minds, and remember the ways we are intimately connected to God. Here we have a way to open our hearts and hands to the source of healing, and to all in need simultaneously. If you are unable to stand in the circle or engage in the physical movements, know you can still fully participate by simply sitting and being present with us.

Love is best when mixed with anguish.
In our town,
we won’t call you a Lover
if you escape the pain.
~ Mevlana Jelaluddin Rumi
