Inner Guidance Groups with Gayan


The practice of contemplative inquiry develops the capacity to follow the voice of guidance in relation to the deepest questions of your heart and your life. The process brings us to a state of intimacy and honesty with our own hearts, where, surprisingly, we have often been strangers. It is motivated by the fire of devotion for the authentic life, and supported by spiritual friends who are committed to the same truth.

Groups meet twice a year on an ongoing basis. Those interested in future groups may contact Gayan.

Current Groups:

The Seattle Washington Group meets in February and August. Currently full. Accepting waiting list. Please contact Aziza Greene

The Younger Adults Group is for seekers in their 30’s and 40’s, and meets in Portland, OR in May and November. Please contact Maryam Sabrina or Nuria Gomez

The Diving into Life: A Sufi Inner Guidance Retreat group meets in Portland, OR. Contact Maryam Sabrina or Nuria Gomez  |  

“I have practiced and learned how to refine the questions of my heart, and listen when my inner guidance answers.  I have learned to see the sublime beauty and purpose of both the joy and pain in my life.”    -Hakima Elizabeth Normand
