he Madison Sufis will present The Path of Love and Light—A Weekend with Pir Zia, on October 18 & 19 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., and also a public lecture October 17 from 7 to 9 p.m., at Holy Wisdom Monastery, in Middleton. Sufi teacher Pir Zia Inayat Khan will share with us the universal teachings of the Sufi Tradition. The Sufi path is a path of the heart—a lifelong journey of awakening the heart. It is a living process that takes one beyond the confines of limited belief and religious form and into the deepest realization of our unity and sacred intimacy with all of existence. With this realization, the Sufi becomes, in Inayat Khan’s words, a “child of the moment,” deeply attuned to and responsive to whatever each sacred moPir Zia Inayat Khan ment offers us, teaches us and asks of us. Ultimately, the Sufi realizes that through our ordinary lives the very creative intelligence of the universe journeys and unfolds. Through stories and poetry, contemplative perspectives, discourse and meditative practices, Inayat Khan will share with us the beauty and wisdom of this ancient tradition.
