THE LIGHT OF GUIDANCE CENTER FOR SUFI STUDIES OF NEW YORK CITY

 The Light of Guidance Center is the New York City Center of the Sufi Order International. 

 The Sufi Order International was founded by Hazrat Inayat Khan, one of the first teachers to bring a message of Sufism to the West in 1910.  It is founded on the basis of spiritual liberty, affirming that behind all names and forms and all spiritual and religious traditions,  one Living Reality exists and manifests through our lives. 

 Our classes emphasize the cultivation of the heart and the bringing of spirituality into everyday life. All classes and retreats are open to all.

DEDICATION: TO PIR VILAYAT KHAN

Pir Vilayat Khan, whose teachings and guidance are the inspiration behind the Light of Guidance Center, passed from this life on June 17, 2004. Listen to some of his words by following the link on the menu above to a talk in New York in 2002.

Dance your sorrows away, dance yourself away. Dance your body to the floor, dance your soul to the sky, dance your thought into a whirlwind, dance your emotions into a spiral, dance your soul into the spirit..Each one is separated from the Beloved by the strength of the ego, and each is united to the Beloved by the strength of her/his love.   Pir Vilayat Khan
