This page is for the biweekly Friday Sufi practice group.
During our meetings we do a variety of Sufi practices – breathed, spoken, chanted; the Beautiful Names, zikr, visual concentration, and always a guided meditation.
What is the ultimate purpose of the Sufi practices we are given? How can that stillness that we all unconsciously crave for, be found? Are we sure that it doesn’t exist in the apparent “outside”? What does “inside” mean?
We explore what capabilities we, as humans, have that would allow us to reach for the Reality. Can we, somehow, use our embodied beingness for just that, or should we aim to be released from the grip of the physicality in order to obtain the true freedom?
You are welcome to take part in any meeting.

Here you can find the recordings of the “primordial meditation” with the senses.
This recording consists of the Healing breaths (breaths of the four elements), explanation+meditaiton – from 09.50, and the chant Om Sri Ram Jai Ram Jai Jai Ram.
You can skip the elemental breaths, but in that case you need to spend a couple of minutes settling and feeling your breath before turning on the recording.
This shorter recording from the 2022 European Sufi Summer school online contains only the explanation and the meditation itself. With German translation.
