Religion often expresses faith with physical manifestations in the material world. The Sufism Reoriented group have recently finished construction of gardens and a sanctuary in Walnut Creek, after many hearings with the Contra Costa Board of Supervisors and four years of work on the site. It’s a classic example of faith creating a physical representation. Join OLLI and docent Kaplan for a tour of the cylindrical buildings, welcoming gardens, and an underground sanctuary that Sufism has produced. Here’s a chance to see how inspirational religious leadership can express itself in architecture, artful arrays of plants, and polished stone.
