Fanna –

A retreat into the sacred portal of the Sufis

You have never experienced life. You only experience your thoughts and emotions which are reactions towards life but it’s not life.

Because we never experience life, we are never alive. We are experiencing the second hand experience of life, filtered by our thoughts, emotions and other conditionings.

To experience life directly is called Fanna and one who experiences life as life becomes alive. In the sufi tradition they are refer to as Qalandar, the sutra is “Naam Fakeer Tina Da Bahu Kabar Jina De Jivey Hu”, a Qalandar is the one whose tomb is alive.

Tomb here refers to the body, in which the beingness or Rooh (soul) is buried and it’s not alive, but a Qalandar is the one who has awakened the beingness; the Rooh in the tomb, the body and experiences life as life.

In the fragrance of Konya, the dwelling space of Maulana Rumi, we invite you to a unique retreat where we will dive into the timeless teachings of the Sufi sages.

Shed the past, awaken the Rooh, whirl your way to enlightenment in the company of Rumi.

Visit the shrines of Shams & Rumi; come drink the wine of intoxication.

Come come and come again even if you have broken your vow a thousand times

~ Rumi
