The lover of Nature is the true worshipper of God.
–Hazrat Inayat Khan
The Sufi teacher Hazrat Inayat Khan, who brought Sufism to North America, considered nature to be the one holy book, the only sacred manuscript written directly by the hand of God; the only scripture which could truly enlighten the reader.
Celebrate Earth Day at Mile Hi Church! Bring your family and friends!
Earth Day, celebrated annually on April 22, is a day to demonstrate support for the Earth and the environment.
You can look forward to:
- A powerful opening invocation and blessing by Dr. Patty Luckenbach to acknowledge the Sacred relationship we hold with the Earth
- An exploration of the Sacredness of water across various faith traditions and an invitation to bring fluidity and flow to your spiritual practice with Rev. Zemirah Jazwierska
- An introduction to the Japanese practice and philosophy of wabi-sabi by practitioner Sandra Troyano. Wabi-sabi invites one to discover the perfection of imperfection and celebrate the beauty of impermanence
- Connecting with nature through the Sufi practice of elemental breathing, facilitated by ordained Sufi minister, Jodie Rain.
We are delighted to have Sara Rain facilitate a Dance of Universal Peace celebrating the Earth.
From the beginning of time, sacred movement, song, and story have brought people together, at times of seasonal ceremony and celebration—as part of everyday life and life passages, in daily renewal and meditation. The Dances of Universal Peace are part of this timeless tradition of Sacred movement, song, and story.
The Dances of Universal Peace are simple, meditative, joyous, multi-cultural circle dances that use sacred phrases, chants, live music, and movements from the many spiritual traditions of the Earth to touch the spiritual essence within ourselves and recognize it in others. They promote peace and integration within individuals and understanding and connection within groups worldwide. There are no performers or audience; new arrivals and old hands form the circle as everyone sings and dances together.
No experience is required. The simple movements are done as a group and are well facilitated. All you need is a willingness to join together in dance and song to celebrate our beautiful planet and our Sacred relationship with it. All are welcome.
