​ Honoring Mother Earth and the Universal Feminine

  • zazen 2219 Filbert Street San Francisco, CA, 94123 United States (map)

“In everything that moves, in every shadow, in every created being, she is the source of the movement, although the shadow is ignorant of its origin… She is deep like an ocean but clearer than a mirror. She is more subtle than the deep love or the light behind the fire and the spirit. She has no names. She is before everything and behind everything, and she is nothing. She is within you. She is more than ancient. She has no color and no body. Everything needs her because there is no life without her… What I mean about her is the secret of the truth of God, the soul of God.”  

-Sidi Muhammad al-Jamal

Please join us on for a celebration of the nurturing, feminine aspect of the Divine Creation. We will enjoy movement, experiential exercises and teachings designed to connect us to Mother Earth and her celestial orbit, and to strengthen our connection to the life-giving, creative light carried within all human beings. 

This workshop is for women only. 

Wear clothing that is comfortable to move and lay down in. 

Tea and light refreshments will be served during a half hour break during the workshop; please bring whatever else you might need to care for yourself. 

Suggested offering of gratitude for the workshop is $50, and no one will be turned away.

Please email with any questions.

The workshop will be led by Kamila Shenman, Ph.D., L.Ac., Dipl.O.M.(NCCAOM), M.Th

Kamila’s search for true healing at the deepest levels eventually led her to Shaykh Sidi Muhammad al-Jamal and the ancient spiritual healing practices of Sufism. Having found on the Sufi way the peace and healing that comes from opening the heart to God’s love, Kamila is blessed to be able to share this path and its teachings with her students, community and clients.

Kamila is a graduate, faculty member, and co-President of the University of Spiritual Healing and Sufism. She holds a Doctorate in Computer Science and Molecular Biology and worked for 18 years at the National Institutes of Health in Bethesda, Maryland. She is also a licensed practitioner of Oriental Medicine, and a former faculty member and Clinic Director of the Maryland Institute of Traditional Chinese Medicine.
