The European Sufi Summer School is open to all. It is rooted in an open spiritual tradition of the ancient Chishtia lineage of Sufism. Our transmission (ruhaniyya) is through Murshid Hazrat Inayat Khan, Murshid Sufi Ahmed Murad Chisti (Samuel L. Lewis) and Murshid Moineddin Jablonski. Threads of their individual spiritual practice also include Zen Buddhism, mystical Christianity, Bhakti and Advaita Yoga, and Kaballah. The Summer School is staffed by dedicated students connected in various ways to and through this line of spiritual transmission. It is not legally or financially connected with any other Sufi corporation, organization or project.
Our 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 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
