The International Summer School of the European Ruhaniat is rooted in the open spiritual tradition of the ancient Chishti lineage of Sufism. Our transmission is through Pir Hazrat Inayat Khan, Pir Sufi Ahmed Murad Chisti (Samuel L. Lewis) and Pir Moineddin Jablonski. Threads of their individual spiritual practice also include Zen Buddhism, mystical Christianity, Bhakti and Advaita Yoga, and Kaballah.
The International Summer School celebrates the living tradition of the many paths of the heart through Dances of Universal Peace, walking meditation, healing, spiritual music, Sufi zikr (Remembrance), art, Soulwork and Spiritual Psychology and more. We emphasize teaching “in the footsteps of” our spiritual ancestors with language and practice adapted to the current challenges of humanity and the planet as a whole.
The International Summer School is open to all. It is not legally or financially connected with any other Sufi corporation, organization or project.
"The devotion of the heart, the expression of calm compassion, the extension of love, the actual growth of wisdom that is reflected in one's daily deeds - these matter." - Murshid Samuel L. Lewis
