Controls will appear when you move your cursor over the pictures. Click on Play to begin a slide show. Click on Pause to have a longer look at any picture. Click on the thumbnails at the side to view any specific picture. If you slide your cursor to the bottom of the thumbnails, more will appear.
The quality of these pictures varies, due to the variable light conditions at different times of the day and night... and the movement of the people. I had to lighten some of them so a few are very grainy.
This slide show contains pictures from the Spring Hummingbird Dance Retreat, May 2013.
"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
"And what happens? We charge up the God-field, just as we did this evening in doing zikr. At this point, the battery of the God-field is very weak in the world. But every time we do zikr in this way, we charge the God-field up again." ~Reb Zalman Schacter
