The Open Path is a non-sectarian approach to spiritual realization offered by
the Sufi Way — a lineage of universal Sufism first introduced in the West in 1910 by the Indian mystic Inayat Khan.

Open Path trainings and retreats are held frequently in Europe and the United States. These programs are dedicated to the direct experience of our natural state — a state known as pure awareness, selflessness, nonduality, oneness, and by many other names. The Open Path is a process of natural enlightenment that belongs to everyone.

While the Open Path is inspired by the Sufi tradition, it is not limited to any doctrine or spiritual style, and you don't have to "be a Sufi" to participate in Open Path programs. Rather, the Open Path is by its very nature open, emphasizing both direct experience and inclusivity of view and method.

In addition to Open Path programs, the Sufi Way offers a wide range of other programs, retreats, and individual guidance in Europe and North America, and community practice and activities through local centers.

Sufi Way teachings and practices draw from all traditions in a spirit of respect and creativity. Our heritage is both a classical Sufi lineage and an approach that is current and universal.
