Zikr at the Tree House
Come join us for monthly Zikr at the Tree House, 222 Grace Ave, Prescott, AZ, on the 2nd Thursday of each month at 7PM.
"Zikr means 'remembrance' - remembering who we are beyond the limitations of our physical selves, and the glory that we are inescapably a part of. Zikr is the practice of chanting or singing prayer and praise to this All-Pervading Reality. This produces the fire of Love in the heart of the devotee, a recognition of the interconnectedness of all things, and a greater ability to live from within that recognition." ~Sky Májida
"Out beyond ideas of wrongdoing and right doing, there is a field. I'll meet you there." ~J. Rumi
