Keeping An  


in Challenging Times



October 24-27, 2024

Dances of Universal Peace,  Sufi Practice, and Community 

with Abraham, Halima, and Yasmin

Can we live our deepest ideals from the inside out?

Can we grow a compassion that lifts us "above the distinctions and differences?"

Will we pledge to respond to difficulty with an open heart, reaching out to others to form a circle of support?

Consider joining us for our 25th annual Fall Retreat, this year at Kirkridge in the Pennsylvania Poconos. Murshids Abraham and Halima Sussman will join Yasmin to co-create with you a comfortable, safe escape from the everyday routine. We will tune our hearts to find the note that allows us to harmonize with each other, and we will recalibrate our inner compass - always toward UNITY and INTERDEPENDENCE. 


Kirkridge is a jewel in the Pocono Mountains of PA. Comfortable 2 and 3 person rooms (no bunks/real mattresses), 9 healthy meals, and an extraordinary setting will hold and inspire us. Among the autumn colors and cooling air of October we will explore the questions above using chant, movement, sufi practice, and the enlivening that arises from souls gathering in Nature. More about Kirkridge.

$400 early registration by 9-2-24

$425 registration after.


We have 2 lodges for the retreat. Nelson and Turning Point. Turning Point is where we will dance and eat. At Nelson we will have some practices and afternoon sessions. The two lodges are a 3 minute drive from each other.

There are twin adult beds in each room. Some rooms have a sink. Bathrooms are separate and single.

See maps below. If you have a lodge preference or a roommate with whom you wish to share let us know on the registration form. 

Here is a great map of Kirkridge -- click on the image to enlarge.
