Dhikr and Discussion: Introduction to Living Peace in Turbulent Times with Dr. John Abd al-Qadir Davies

Friday, March 17th from 8 - 9:30 pm at Zazen SF, 2219 Filbert St. in San Francisco

Are you wondering how to stay grounded and centered amidst a constantly changing world? Do you feel like there is nothing to hold onto?

Are you having a hard time staying connected? Join Dr. John Abdul Qadir Davies for a Sufi Dhikr followed by a discussion about how to start to find peace within despite all the changes happening around us. As the saying goes, "Peace is an inside job." Come consider how to stay grounded in the peace, no matter how hard the waves are crashing around you. This evening is a prelude to the deeper teachings to follow at Abd al-Qadir's day long workshop the following day. Refreshments to follow. $20 suggested donation, no one turned away. Register online.

Dr. John Abd al-Qadir Davies is Visiting Associate Professor and Co-Director of Partners in Peacebuilding at the University of Maryland’s Center for International Development and Conflict Management, co-founder of the Masters in Peacemaking Program at the University of Spiritual Healing and Sufism, and Director of the Living Peace Program at the Farm of Peace.  He has led peace initiatives in over 30 countries around the world, co-developed conflict and genocide early warning systems for the US government and international coalitions, and trained UN peace keepers from many countries.  He mediates conflicts between couples and within communities, organizations and families and leads retreats and workshops for those seeking peace and reconciliation at all levels of life.
