Retreat with Pir Zia, Feb. 13-19 on Mustang Island

(from Azar Baksh Don Weiner)

Dear friends,

The Esoteric Training Committee encourages you to attend a very special alchemical retreat on Mustang Island near Corpus Christi, Texas, with Pir Zia from February 13 to 19, 2020. The retreat will delve intensively into the Alchemical Process as a crucible for dissolution and reintegration. Together in the seclusion of Mustang Island on the Gulf of Mexico, we will spiritually travel to the Light of Lights and return renewed and ready for our shared work in the world. The retreat is open to leaders in each of the concentrations of the Inayati Order. If space is available, mureeds deeply involved in the esoteric school and who are recommended by their Inayati Order spiritual guide are also welcome to attend. This is a very rare opportunity for us to share a deep retreat together. Prior retreat experience is highly recommended, as this will be an advanced retreat.

Registration information can be found at

As of October 9 there are a few remaining spaces for on-site housing, and there are many condos and Airbnb properties nearby.

On behalf of the esoteric training committee and with love,
Azar Baksh Weiner
