Sufi Secrets of Love: The Jewel You Carry Inside You

Is your heart longing for something, but you haven't found it yet? Do your relationships ever leave you feeling disappointed or unfulfilled? Do you find it hard to accept or love yourself unless something changes? Do you carry pain inside that just doesn’t seem to get better? 

The Sufis have spent centuries pondering these dilemmas, and have taught us that ultimately life is all about love - finding and receiving the love offered in every moment. As Rumi says, “Your task is not to seek love, but merely to seek and find all the barriers within yourself that you have built against it.”

Join us for a series of workshops exploring various ways to open to Divine Love in every aspect of our being. Each month will be a different focus; another doorway to walk closer to the source of Love. During the series we will explore such topics as: Mercy & Forgiveness, Healing with Divine Love, The Jewel You Carry Inside You, Love is the Reason for Your Existence, Guidance & Trust, and more. These classes include teachings as well as experiential practices that will show you how to connect to and nourish from the source of love within you, transforming your life from the inside out. Teachings are not sequential; anyone can benefit from one or all sessions offered. This workshop is relevant to anyone on a spiritual path, at any point in their journey.

Sunday December 3th, 12:00 – 5:00 pm

Rahima Herminia Hayes has been studying spiritual healing since 1997 in Mexico City where she was raised.  In 2008 she discovered Sufi healing as taught by her guide Sidi Muhammad al Jamal, the modality which resonated most deeply in her heart.  She is a graduate of the Masters in Divinity program at the University of Spiritual Healing and Sufism, and loves to help people learn to read their own hearts and find a higher Source of wisdom that is full of Divine Love, Mercy, and Compassion.

Abdullah Daniel Hayes has been a student of Sufism since he took hand with his guide Sidi Muhammad al Jamal in 2005.  He is currently attending the University of Spiritual Healing and Sufism in Pope Valley, CA.  A passion of his is experiencing the effects of holy language on the heart and the body.  He has been transformed by the ancient wisdom contained in the teachings of Sufism.

Mahabba Kimberly Young has been a student of Sidi Muhammad al Jamal since 2012 when she first heard him teach about healing with love and mercy. Since then she has completed a Masters of Divinity in Spiritual Peacemaking from the University of Spiritual Healing and Sufism.
