3rd International Sufi Gathering
In the City of Languages and Religions: Mardin
TOWARDS THE ONE SPIRITUAL FRIENDSHIP
July 8-11, 2020
Along with Venice and Jerusalem, Mardin is one of the three cities in the world whose structure texture is intact and protected. It is a world city that has embraced various civilizations and hosted different sects, ethnic groups and traditions on the historical Silk Road and the fertile Mesopotamian plain for 12 thousand years. It is on the UNESCO “World Cultural Heritage List” with its appearance as a Natural Outdoor Museum. It is the meeting point of religions (Islam, Christianity and Yazidi) and languages (Turkish, Kurdish, Arabic, Syriac and Armenian).
We have successfully completed our 1st International Sufi Conference and Retreat Camp (Konya 2018) and 2nd International Sufi Conference: Sufi Chivalry in the evolution of Personality (Sarıkamıs/Kars, 2019), under the leadership of our beloved teacher Sarafil Bawa (Pir Zia Inayat Khan) and with the participation of our valuable international and Turkish teachers and our esteemed guests.
This year, on July 8-11, 2020, in Mardin, we will again in the leadership Dr. Zia Inayat Khan, welcome our international and domestic teachers and guests. During the conference, as we experience our inner richness that we have inherited from our ancestors, we will celebrate the legacy of Prophet Abraham (pbuh) known as “the Friend of God” and we will have the opportunity to explore the richness of Mardin's history as well.
Between July 12-17, with the participation of Zia Inayat Khan, we will visit Mardin, Sanliurfa, Adiyaman and Diyarbakir, respectively.
