What we’re about
Sufi School is temporarily holding online virtual group meditation meetups on Zoom due to COVID-19 until in-person meetings resume. We welcome individuals of all faiths and persuasions to come and hear about the path and practices and then sit in meditation to experience its effects and benefits. New members are welcome to attend their first session by joining the events published here on a bi-weekly basis. In-person meetings will resume after the COVID-19 pandemic and will be accessible to the residents of North York, Vaughan, Markham, Scarborough, Richmond Hill and Thornhill.
Sufi meditation will help bring energy, creativity and a lucid understanding of life to the practitioner. The practice of Sufi meditation transforms the nature of the heart and ultimately brings about a change in the very nature of the self and its negotiation of the world.
`If Sufism is defined as mystical or the way of the mystic, then its message addresses all peoples, not just the followers of one religion. Every faith has its own Sufism. In every nation and community there have been Sufis, although they have taken different names and adopted varying practices.`
The School of Sufi Teaching, Canada, offers free instructions in the teachings of five main Sufi Orders – the Naqshbandi, Mujaddidi, Chishti, Qadiri and Shadhili - with special emphasis on the Mujaddidi silent meditation practice.
