June 2019

As you are reading this my Cultural and Mystical Tour of Iran is visiting mystic and ancient sites as well as cultural centers in Iran. My guests are experiencing history, music, dance, poetry, and more. But before it had even started I had already had many requests for a date when the next cultural tour of Iran would be scheduled.

On the heels of my Cultural and Mystical Tour of Iran I will be greeting guests converging from all over the world to the Bademhan Retreat Center in Edirne, Turkey for my Warrirors of Light retreat. During this 5 day retreat and tour they will channel their inner warrior and learn to practice the sacred dances of the great Sufi Warriors, hear of their ancient adventures, learn of their great wisdom, and visit their sacred sites and resting places. Our evenings will be blessed by amazing musicians from Turkey, a candle dance ceremony for our New Moon ceremony, ancient Iranic fire rituals, and more. There is still room for a few participants to take advantage of this opportunity. See below for details.

Finally, my travels next take me to historic Beruit, Lebanon where I will facilitate Dance of the Soul, a weekend Sufi dance retreat from June 28-30. Guests will learn Sufi whirling practices and participate in Sema and sacred circles. Registration is still open until June 6.

I look forward to meeting all who come to join in these tours and retreats before I make my way home in July. Where ever you are I hope to dance with you this summer.
