Overview 
A Personal Experience of the Sufi Movement In Canada
by Jelaluddin Gary Sill

In the late 1970’s, a group of young people living in Alberta, Canada were introduced to the philosophy of Hazrat Inayat Khan, a spiritual teacher who travelled from India to the West in 1910. He spread what he called the Sufi Message, first through his music, then through lectures and writing.
Sufia Carol Sill had written to Shamcher Bryn Beorse, a student of Inayat Khan, who lived in Washington state. Their deep connection informed and focused the weekly meetings held in Edmonton and Calgary and a Sufi community reflecting the ideals of Inayat Khan Sufism began to develop.

Either we are all Sufis or nobody is, exclaimed Murshid Hidayat on many occasions.

The ideals of Love, Harmony and Beauty, Spiritual Liberty, and Universal Sisterhood/Brotherhood are brought into the "real" world by holding those ideals in one’s heart but also by supporting their outward expression. One's beliefs and practices can bring about change. When shared with others the change has potential to be much more far-reaching.
Everyone with sympathy for the expression of the Sufi Message is a worker for the Message. Our lives are made more complete by trying to make life better for others through sharing the spiritually we have found.

Each year SMIC offers weekly meetings, workshops, email communications and a website. We invite you to join us in sharing the Sufi message in our times.
