On Sunday, July 16, 2017, M.T.O. Shahmaghsoudi® in Sacramento held a special community event titled "Sufi Zikr: Polishing the Heart." The focus of the event was on the power and transcendence of the practice of zikr. The zikr choir beautifully performed four different selections leading the audience in two of them. There were presentations on heart energy, light energy, and the expansion and contraction of the heart, as well as a Rumi poetry reading. The event was well-attended. Several attendees expressed a definite interest in learning more about Sufism, and in attending a regular session. Overall the event was a great success and we look forward to future opportunities to share the light and love of Sufism.
