Village View – Week of September 27
“The soul in its manifestation on earth is not at all disconnected from the higher spheres. It lives in all spheres, though generally conscious only on one plane.”
Pir Vilayat Inayat Khan
Based on teachings of Hazrat Inayat Khan, Pir Vilayat Inayat Khan, Pir Zia Inayat Khan and classical Sufism this series of 6 weekly classes will progressively explore the planes of consciousness. Inner degrees, levels or spheres of awakening are described in many spiritual paths. Our historical self image gives us a narrow identity of who we are. An experiential approach to understanding these planes is a means of exploring changes in one’s sense of consciousness at different levels. The goal is not to force experience into a theoretical system, but to awaken awareness of inner states of consciousness.
Practices of the breath, sacred sound, contemplation and meditation will be explored to support the ability to experience the planes. The classes will have time for questions and will include assignments to explore between each session.
Classes will be held from 11:00 am – 12:30 pm ET
September 15, 22, 29 & October 6, 13 and 20
Classes will be recorded and made available to those who register. Donations gratefully received!
