The Githas

with Aqil Brown

1st and 3rd Wednesdays of the month, 7 - 8 PM Eastern Time (North America) : April 5th, 19th; May 3rd, 17th; June 7th, 21st.

The Githa papers are a course of study given by Hazrat Inayat Khan for the murid who is ready to prepare for the realization of the soul. The murid, having awakened, now journeys into that vision of a new world of spirit. The task before the murid is to develop an intuitive and natural awareness of the expansive levels on which the soul experiences life. The mind and emotions are attuned to allow the finer vibrations to be felt. The cause and effect of impressions and intentions are watched. The inner and outer life are brought into harmony. One's motivation is sought out at its roots. One's purpose is found in the re-homing of the soul in this life and in preparing it for the next. ... Show more about this class

The Journey of the Message

with Yaqin Aubert and Naima Brown

Sessions: Tuesdays, 11:00 AM - 12:30 PM EST(New York), Mar. 14th – Apr. 18th, 2023

"The subject of the Message, is something which must come from oneself, a realization which must spring from one's own heart." - Hazrat Inayat Khan

"By concentration, by contemplation, and by meditation, the heart is purified, enlarged, and made into a receptacle of the Message." - Hazrat Inayat Khan

Hazrat Inayat Khan speaks about 3 aspects of the message : receiving the message , assimilating the message and representing the message. We will explore the journey from the inner reception to the outward expression. What stirs our heart and soul? What are our special contributions? What do you wish to share? How does the experience of concentration, contemplation, meditation and realization help us to offer our unique contributions to the world? We will use practices of breath, sacred sound, Wazifa, Zikr and visualization to support our journey. Join Yaqin and Naima in this ever changing yet everlasting theme.

All are welcome! Ashiqs, Murids, experienced and new travelers on the path ...

The Inayatiyya - A Sufi Path of Spiritual Liberty

The work of the Inayatiyya is founded upon the teachings of Hazrat Inayat Khan and his successors Pir Vilayat Inayat Khan and Pir Zia Inayat-Khan. Hazrat Inayat Khan brought the spiritual heritage of Sufism from India to the Western nations of Europe and the Americas, adapting it to the conditions of those cultures. His successors have continued to adapt the presentation of Sufism to ever-changing modern conditions, while strongly holding the connection to the living essence that they represent. It is not just a philosophy, but a practice of working with the self to realize all the dimensions of one's being, come to a fuller understanding and joy, and to communicate that in everyday life.

"Thus the ultimate purpose for which the soul is seeking every moment of our life, is our spiritual purpose. And you may ask how to attain to that purpose. The answer is that what you are seeking for is within yourself. Instead of looking outside, you must look within. The way to proceed to accomplish this is for some moments to suspend all your senses such as sight, hearing, smell, touch, in order to put a screen before the outside life; and by concentration and by developing that meditative quality you will sooner or later get in touch with the inner self which is more communicative, which speaks more loudly than all the noises of this world; and this gives joy, creates peace, and produces in you a self-sufficient spirit, a spirit of independence, of true liberty."

-- Hazrat Inayat Khan
