Seeking the Simurgh

An online retreat with Pir Zia Inayat Khan

Friday July 23 – Sunday July 25, 2021, 2:30 pm – 9:30 p.m. CET


Among the most beautiful stories of the Sufi tradition is the tale told by Farid ad-Din ‘Attar of a flock of birds of many feathers who set out under the guidance of the Hoopoe in search of the Simurgh, the Bird of Birds. Along the way they pass through seven valleys, each heralding a stage in the path that leads to the fulfillment of life’s purpose. They struggle with inner obstacles and make numinous discoveries, and at last thirty birds reach the throne of the Simurgh, where they meet with a bewildering and illuminating surprise. In this online retreat, we will accompany ‘Attar’s birds in the journey of the soul, sharing in their conundrums as well as their flights of inspiration, valley by valley. 


The retreat will be offered worldwide in English with translation into German and French.
