About Us

Toronto has been served by various centres of the Sufi Order International for more than thirty years. There are currently three centres in the Greater Toronto area. While the Awakening Heart Circle, the newest centre, is sponsoring this website, it is intended to be a resource for all Toronto area SOI centres and as such you will find links and activity listings for all Sufi Order International Centres in the Toronto area. We also support other organizations that trace their origins to the teachings of Pir-O-Murshid Hazrat Inayat Khan, such as the Sufi Ruhaniat and the Dances of Universal Peace, and also seek to help promote awareness of other organizations and activities in the area doing work that will help our community members along their own Sufi path.

Many dedicated people have contributed to organizing, conducting, and leading Sufi Order classes and events in Toronto. You'll find a bit of information about some of them on our website's Who We Are page.

Even though its primary purpose is to serve the local SOI centres, like anything on the Internet, this website provides a means of reaching a global audience. We invite anyone with an open heart to participate in our online community. Members of the website have user accounts that enable them to add comments and postings to our online discussion forums and other shared communication resources. You can ask for a user account using this form. For more information, you can write to us using our contact form.

Hazrat Inayat Khan

Pir-O-Murshid Hazrat Inayat Khan

From the Gayan

He concerns himself in vain who thinks, "Why are not others what they ought to be?" But he who concerns himself with that he is not what he ought to be, is right.
— Sayings of Hazrat Inayat Khan: Gayan - Talas
