The Sufi Way
The Sufi Way is a mystical order dedicated to awakening and friendship.
By “awakening” we mean direct recognition of pure awareness, the nameless unity of Being. By “friendship” we mean a warm-hearted embrace toward all — ourselves, our loved ones, our world, and all of creation. Friendship — kindness — is the natural outcome of recognizing our Oneness.
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.
We offer programs, retreats, and individual guidance in Europe and North America, and community practice and activities through local centers. Many of our programs are described as the Open Path, signifying a path of natural awareness, humility and freshness that is open to us all.
