Weekly Sufi meetings start at 7:15PM and end at 9:15PM.

The evenings are a mix of practices, readings, discussion and usually close with a Wazifa (chant).

The Singing Zikar of Inayat Khan is usually performed every 3rd meeting.

We have some mats and cushions for the chanting but do bring your own if you prefer. It is also fine to sit in a chair if floor sitting is not possible.

Unfortunately, children cannot be accommodated.

WHO WE ARE
A Community
We are a group of people that meet to share the teachings and practices of the Indian musician and mystic, Hazrat Inayat Khan. This includes meditation, chanting, breathing, concentrations and readings.

There is a mix of new and experienced participants who meet in friendship with the shared aim of becoming living examples of Love, Harmony and Beauty. Although all religions are respected, this is a spiritual group, not a religious one.

WHAT IT IS
Sufism
"According to the sacred history which the Sufis have inherited from one another, it is clear that Sufism has never been owned by any race or religion, for differences and distinctions are the very delusions from which Sufis purify themselves. It might appear that Sufism must have been formed of the different elements of various religions which are prominent today, but it is not so, for Sufism itself is the essence of all the religions...".
Hazrat Inayat Khan
Hazrat Inayat Khan
...the founder of the Sufi Movement, was born in Baroda, India on July 5, 1882. He was a famous musician when he left India with his cousin and brother in 1910, travelling in the West to bring to the world the harmony of the music of India and the Sufi Message of spiritual liberty.

Inayat Khan traveled widely in America and Europe from 1910 until 1920, when he set up a residence in France and focused on summer schools, classes and lectures. In this uniquely western form of Sufism, there are no barriers of race, creed or religion, it is not a religion, but rather a way of life that enhances and fulfills every religion. As Inayat Khan said, "The Sufi sees the truth in every religion."
"A mystic calls life motion. It is constant motion in every aspect, both fine and gross, and in all its planes. Where there is motion there must be change and diversity".
