Let's play!
Tuesday, July 5th
11:15 AM
Wilson State Park in Bearsville-
    under the pavilion - rain or shine
Music and Play for Peace - collaborative music led by Laila
    followed at 12:15 by whatever people wish - sing-along, jamming, etc.

We are full of music, each and every one of us.
Let's play and explore in collaborative music-making together in the open air.
Your voices and all instruments are welcome to join.
You do not need to be a "musician."
I (Laila) have been developing and exploring skills in facilitating these
collaborative groups. It would help me learn to have a chance to practice
this with you. Thank you in advance. Come out and play!

What emerges when people of any skill level come together is often inspiring, uplifting, humorous, playful, and transcendent. Science has found that music, movement, creative play and transcendent experience heal the brain and bring hope. Karen Beth, my trusty co-conspirator, is long known and beloved in our area for her music and heart. It's a blessing to foment this with her.

Feel free to reply to one or both of us if you can come; otherwise, just come!

In Peace and play, Laila BW (and Karen Beth)

The Shadhuliyya Sufi Center Northeast /
Woodstock Sufi Center

The Shadhuliyya Sufi Center Northeast/Woodstock Sufi Center is dedicated to healing and growing through the deep love of God. We serve the Kingston and Woodstock, NY area, and the greater Northeast, and all those who are called to return to their true nature through divine love. Though the "technology" we use is Sufi-based, the teachings are universal, and all can benefit, whatever one's beliefs. At the same time we offer study in Sufism for the student serious about deepening their relationship to God in the Sufi way. 

"When you find the love, you find yourself."

We offer classes, Sufi zikr (chanting), spiritual counseling, healing sessions, teleclasses and more, and are affiliated with other Shadhuliyya Sufi centers in New York , Central and Western Massachusetts and Boston, among others, as well as nationally.
Founder and Director of the Woodstock Sufi Center, Laila Brady Walzer, M.Div., has studied and practiced healing, music and sound, and the spiritual journey for decades. She personally healed from chronic illness through Sufi sacred chant, spiritual growth, and herbs. She is faculty at the University of Sufism ( and is actively involved in regional and national events of the Shadhdhuliyya tariqa as brought here by Sh. Sidi Muhammad al-Jamal.
She loves to help people come home to the inner resources of love, joy wisdom and peace that we each have.

Healing in the Sufi way...

Our suffering as human beings  - emotional pain, mental confusion, physical disease, spiritual loss—is a reflection of where we have lost connection with the Deep Love that is our true nature.  Deep healing, joy, peace, harmony and much, much more are available when we return. Our physical health, our state of mind and heart, our relationships, our ability to earn a living and give productively in the world, all improve greatly when we return to Love. Ultimately, we contribute to world peace; how can we not when we are nourished by, live from and give Love?

Come join us in the glorious journey back to God within the deep heart, and the fruits that blossom from that – peace, love, mercy, justice and freedom.
