The Inayati Order

Richmond, VA

The Inayati Order is dedicated to spreading the Sufi Message of Hazrat Inayat Khan, who first introduced Sufism to the Western world in 1910. “The heart is the wellspring of our deepest motivations, a container for love. The goal of Sufism is to develop the capacity of the heart—the capacity to hold all the complexities of life in a matrix of love—and to discover the divinity inherent in all of creation.”
