Camp Write-Up: Camp theme varies from year to year. Led by Maboud & Tara Andrea and occasionally teachers from different inclusive spiritual traditions. Camp activities include Dance of Universal Peace, Zikr. There also an emphasis on Wazifah practices and wazifah dances. There are many original dances emphasizing the Wazifahs that have arisen from our relationship with the Beautiful Names of the Divine Essence. These qualities are also sacred seeds of possibility inherent in our human hearts, representing pathways to becoming complete and balanced human beings. Through attuning to these realities of our divinity and humanity, we are led to shed a new light on suffering, our limitations and wounded ego condition.

These Names or Wazifahs can help us understand the challenges of our humanity that are often driven by our perceived isolation and separateness from the presence of love. We hope that through these dances and practices we can more fully to embrace the qualities of a higher power within us and outside us that enable us to live more fully as compassionate, joyful, peaceful, wise, connected and balanced individuals.
