      The Inayatiyya: An Alchemical Retreat for Leaders of the Six Activities

      In this five-day retreat for leaders in the Inayatiyya we will delve intensively into the Alchemical Process as a crucible for dissolution and reintegration. Together in the seclusion of Mustang Island we will spiritually travel to the Light of Lights, and return renewed and ready for our shared work in the world.This particular retreat is open to leaders within the Inayati Order's Esoteric School, Sufi Healing Order, Universal Worship, Kinship, Knighthood of Purity, and Ziraat. Also open to murids deeply involved in the Esoteric School, as space is available, by recommendation of their Inayati Order spiritual guide. We have room for 100 retreatants, with 48 spaces for people staying on site at the Mustang Island Conference Center. All rooms on site are shared rooms, two queen beds with a private bath similar to a hotel room. Additional accommodations are available through condos on Mustang Island, to be reserved and paid for separately. If you arrange to stay at a condo, please register as a commuter for the retreat. Mustang Island is a barrier island on the Gulf Coast of Texas. The closest city is Corpus Christi, where our local hosts, Azar Baksh and Ravani Rah Weiner have an Inayati Order Center. Weather should be mild to warm in February, offering a mid-winter beach respite in the solitude of silence.
