VIDEO: A Loon Lake Welcome
There has never been a time in the history of humanity when disaster and hardship have not been terrifying realities and threats. “We live in troubled times” could be regarded as a universal truism. What has Sufi practice and thought to offer as tools and inspiration to help us navigate the tumultuous waters of our own times?
“When we dive within, we find that our real self is above the perpetual motion of the universe.”
Pir-o-Murshid Hazrat Inayat Khan
Please join us for The Sufi In The World retreat where we will experience the calming and grounding effects of focused breath, concentration, and sung meditation. In friendship we will share the joyful and uplifting influence of music and dance.
Rhythm is essential in life. Our program at Loon Lake will be organized around a repeating schedule: morning practices, a generous time for rest and relaxation after lunch, afternoon presentations and discussions, and the Gentle Singing Zikar of Inayat Khan each evening.
“The world is evolving from imperfection towards perfection; it needs all love and sympathy; great tenderness and watchfulness is required from each one of us.”.
Pir-o-Murshid Hazrat Inayat Khan
We will be honoured by the inspiring presence of Murshida Nuria Sabato as both a presenter and participant in our program. Nuria is Co-Representative General of The International Sufi Movement, with whom we are associated.
Other presenters will include experienced Canadian Sufi leaders who were guided and trained by Murshid Hidayat Inayat Khan.

Loon Lake Lodge, in UBC’s Malcolm Knapp Research Forest, is located on the shores of Loon Lake, east of Vancouver near Maple Ridge. This is a secluded location in the depth of the forest with restricted access.
Our retreat will be held in Koerner Lodge, a self-contained building right on the lake-shore which contains a gorgeous practice room with large picture windows, it’s own private dining room and deck, and sixteen bedrooms. We encourage you to view the five minute video about Loon Lake Lodge which appears above.
