The Circle Group > News > Ramadhan Retreat 2010

walk_to_masjidThe Circle Group’s Ramadan Retreat is an opportunity for spiritual rejuvenation and clarification, through practice, of one’s understanding of Islam and Tasawwuf in daily life.  A schedule of suhbat, prayer, recitation, and meditation will uplift our souls and increase our piety and our understanding.

Held on the lush, 80-acre facility of the World Community in rural Virginia, the retreat provided a venue  to seek the blessings of the month of Ramadan away from the distractions of daily life.
