HEALING RETREATS IN MARCH with Devi
Devi will lead individual Healing Retreats from Friday to Sunday, March 14-16, 2014. All Healing Conductor Trainees must have a Healing Retreat as part of the training. She highly recommends the full 3-day retreat, residential rather than commuter. (Very different experience if commuter but would be available). Others who are interested can have a 3-day retreat or could come for two days if absolutely necessary. Twelve people from the Healing Conductors’ Training Group have expressed interest depending on the dates. We would like to extend the invitation to everyone. Devi is the Kefayat, head, of the North American and Pacific Healing Order. Cost of tuition will be $250 for the full 3 days; $100/day if less than 3 days. Devi agrees to accept extended payment (installment) plans if necessary for the tuition, available by individual arrangement. Retreat facility fees depend on facility, but an estimate might be $80 to $100/night for room and board, making the total estimated cost in the range of about $500 to $600 for residential; tuition and meals for commuters. We regret that reduced fees will not be available for this event. People would arrive Thurs evening, March 13 and stay 3 nights, leaving Sunday after retreat ends. Please let Alia know ASAP if you are interested for March 14-16. firstname.lastname@example.org. We need to know now whether you can commit to attending so we know if we can do this.
Sufi Ruhaniat International Classes are based on the teachings of Hazrat Inayat Khan.
