Welcome to the Ozark Sufi Youth Page! 

We are truly blessed to have a vibrant Sufi youth community in the heartland. While some have grown up inside the Sufi circle, others are joining as we deepen our practices together.

We invite you to join us for dancing, singing, sweat lodge, writing class, praying, and making music together.

"Only from the heart can you touch the sky. -Rumi
