Building you Temple of Light

For June’s First Tuesday meditation at Bayou Bliss, please join us with Joseph Ayaz in a favorite practice, Building a Temple of Light; and let’s join together in joy to send our friend Tanya off on her pilgrimage along the Camino de Santiago.

Hail to the company of all who have become mad and drunk
with desire for the world of light, with their passionate love
for the majesty of the light of lights, and who, in their ecstasy,
have become like the seven poles of the world.
—Shihabuddin Suhrawardi

Using music, the breath, a mantra-like practice called wazifa, and guided imagery, we will recollect our light being and work to build, in and with our selves, the form of a temple of light.

Your body is made out of the fabric of the stars. It started to exist in the great outburst of the Big Bang. The whole past is present in us, and that means that even in our bodiness we are beings of light. And that light has crystallized itself into what we think is matter. It has the faculty of absorbing light from the environment and being transformed by it.
—Pir Vilayat Inayat Khan
