The Universal Human with Himayat Inayati | October 4-6 | This three to five day retreat at The Pir Vilayat Center will be an introduction and exploration of al-Insān al-Kāmil, the universal human, a transpersonal archetype activating each of us to manifest as a unique exemplar. The teaching and practice offered by this retreat process will be an exercise of awakening to an inner condition of perfection resting as a pearl awaiting us in our soul.

Retreat-in-Life with Wahhab and Batina Sheets | October 18-26 | Spiritual retreat is one of the most powerful processes we have for spiritual growth and transformation; however, because we tend to have very busy lives, it is often difficult for many of us to leave work and family responsibilities behind for several days to go into seclusion for an individually guided retreat. In order to make the benefits of retreat more available for everyone, particularly for those who find it difficult to get away, Wahhab and Batina are offering a retreat process during their time at the Abode that can be integrated into one’s everyday life routines and responsibilities: a Retreat-in-Life. Online participation will also be available. The purposes are the same as the traditional retreat: awakening, renewal, and transformation; but instead of doing practices in seclusion, one uses the activities and experiences of one’s everyday life as teachers and guides for one’s journey of Self-discovery and transformation. Visit theabode.org/programs/750 for more details and registration.
