The Sufi Way
The Sufi Way is an initiatic mystical order and an informal community of service. As a mystical order its function is to provide guidance for those who wish to realize “the Truth” — the nameless, ineffable clear light that is the ground of being — and to support those who are graced with this realization as they learn to deepen, sustain, and express it in their lives. Acknowledging the limitation of language and concepts in this description, the work of the inner school of the Sufi Way finds its reality beyond language in the initiatic moment of this realization.
As an informal community of service, students of the Sufi Way who have been touched by this profound realization naturally make themselves available to serve the needs of others in whatever ways are most appropriate and possible in the moment. This open-hearted service is accomplished not by following a moral or religious script but in spontaneous, compassionate responsiveness to each individual and situation that occurs. (Read more)
Nine-Month Open Path Trainings 2013 - 2014
The nine-month Open Path Trainings have become well known in Europe and the States for their clear, non-sectarian approach to spiritual awakening. The programs are now in their seventh year, and a book, The Open Path, has been published based on the manual for the course. Open Path Trainings are currently being held in Germany, England, and America. Each training consists of three 4-day residential seminars held over the period of nine months, along with group and individual telephone calls, and a series of practices that accompany each stage of the work.
