In this retreat we will look at the path of love as the path to God. Specifically, we will discuss Sufi teachings pertaining to the relationship that holds between the capacity for interpersonal love and the capacity for loving the Divine. We will discover that there is a strong connection between the two, as our models of interpersonal love strongly influence the way we think about, as well as experience and approach, the Divine. As part of the spiritual practice segments of this retreat we will also partake in a Sufi song circle and brief silent meditation practices.
