Sufis are searchers on the spiritual path of love and of the heart. We welcome and support EVERY heart of all spiritual denominations in their unique journey of discovery – including those who do not embrace the idea of God. Direct personal experiences, rather than ideas, are the foundation of Sufi teaching and practice. Do join us at one of our many gatherings and events to find out how this works for you. Sufi events are listed here.
Sufi teaching emphasizes spiritual development based on personal experience. Reading cannot provide this although understanding does help deepen our practice. In this website we provide a brief introduction to Sufi Teachings and the Sufi Path in New Zealand but the way to really find out about New Zealand Sufism is to JOIN US in our gatherings and practices. You can read more about our people in the Inayati Sufi Order Aotearoa New Zealand here.
