East Scotland Sufi Centre

The East Scotland Sufi Centre sponsors monthly classes including a variety of practices like walking and sitting meditation, Sufi papers study, chanting, prayer, the Sufi healing ritual and the Dances of the Universal Peace, for mureeds and those seriously enquiring into Sufism as a spiritual path.

We also sponsor workshops and classes by visiting Sufi teachers (Sheikh Abdul Aziz Bukhari, 2004, 2008; Dr Seyyed Hossein Nasr, 2008; Pir Shabda Kahn, 2011, Murshid Saul Barodofsky, September 2014) as well as international gatherings of Sufi teachers (International Sufi Symposia, 2005 and 2011). Sufi events are also sponsored in cooperation with the Edinburgh International Festival of Middle Eastern Spirituality and Peace, which was co-founded by the centre leader.

Centre leader: Murshid Saadi Shakur Chishti.
