  1. Beloved Hussein:

    What a gift! I had the same feeling at a Ruhaniyyat Sufi Camp in Mexico
    when I was allowed to co-create a Sufi dance using one of our
    Ismaili tasbihs, a guitar, and tambourines We all sang and danced together and I was deeply
    moved.
    Love, light and shadow,
    Jalaledin
