European Sufi Summer School

Monday, 1 – Sunday, 7 July 2024, Proitzer Müehle (Germany)

Registration is now open!

Our theme in 2024:

The Return of Holy Wisdom: Uncovering the Forgotten Way of Being Human.

The whole-school class will be presented by our director Saadi Shakur Chisti (Neil Douglas Klotz.)

Natalia Nur Jahan will present a class dedicated to the increase of our connection to the Light, both in and without forms:

Thy Light is in All Forms, Thy Love in All Beings

The hypnosis of this apparent world makes us believe ourselves to be small and fragile, sometimes even unloved and unworthy. We forget the magnificence of Love and Light that we are part of, that is our Truth, our real Life.  Just how can we re-discover that, in reality, we are capable of embracing and sustaining a great amount of Light, are able to channel boundless Love and Delicacy into the world? 

Through Sufi practice, which will include the Beautiful Names, zikr and tasawwuri walks, as well as though meditation and energy work, we will endeavour to reach for the Light, expecting to open our hearts to the ongoing flow of support that is pouring upon us each moment of our life.

Past Workshops

21-­st European Sufi Summer School

24 June – 1 July 2023, Proitzer Müehle (Germany)


The Shared Language of Unity,

Spoken and Silent

In 2023 our annual European Sufi summer school returns in person. We will embrace various approaches to the deeper sense of unity, which is nothing but Unity, the nameless Reality itself. Experiencing Unity affects the way a person perceives and acts in everyday life. The Sufis call this life-changing experience tawhid, from the “Beautiful Name,” Al Wahid. The word implies that there are as many ways to this wordless mystery as there are beings in the seen and unseen worlds.

As we have done for the past 20 years, classes will offer periods of teaching, practice, and prayer as well as periods of silence and meditation, sitting and moving together. The overall effect is a retreat within a supportive community.

Natalia Nur Jahan presents a class on Creation: The Choice We Cannot Avoid

Whether we are conscious of it or totally unaware, relish the process or wish to close our eyes and ears and perhaps even turn around and run away, we all are constantly creating our reality. So what would it take for us to construct the world we truly love living in? In this class we explore tips, tools, and practices that can help us align our creative ability with our innermost truth.

The European Sufi Summer School is open to all. It is rooted in an open spiritual tradition of the ancient Chistia lineage of Sufism. Our transmission (ruhaniyya) is through Murshid Hazrat Inayat Khan, Murshid Sufi Ahmed Murad Chisti (Samuel L.Lewis) and Murshid Moineddin Jablonski. Threads of their individual spiritual practice also include Zen Buddhism, mystical Christianity, Bhakti and Advaita Yoga, and Kaballah.

The Summer School is staffed by dedicated students connected in various ways to and through this line of spiritual transmission. It is not legally or financially connected with any other Sufi corporation, organisation or project. Our international Summer School celebrates the living tradition of the many paths of the heart through Sufi zikr (Remembrance), sitting and walking meditation, healing, spiritual music, Soulwork and Spiritual Psychology, art and Dances of Universal Peace, and more.

We emphasize teaching “in the footsteps of” our spiritual ancestors with language and practice adapted to the current challenges of humanity and the planet as a whole.


All classes are conducted in English and German (with translation.)

Online Workshops

health for the healer 2022/23

This course is now finished. To get the access to the recordings, please enquire here.

The purpose of these classes is to offer help for the conductors of the healing ritual of Hazrat Inayat Khan to overcome some of the usual difficulties. These issues are predominantly the same that get in the way of any healer, as well as of anyone who regularly offers help to others, be that by the way of a therapy, caring, or even when raising a child.

All sessions also include the Sufi Absent Healing Ritual. 

 If you have any questions, please use the email address at the top of the page to get in touch.

Health for the Healer sessions information

From August 2022 we will be focusing the first half of our meeting on the things pivotal for the healer’s health.

Predominantly, these are the same issues that make the difference for the physical and mental health of anyone who is striving to be in service to others, as well as of people we are aiming to help.

The classes will be rooted in Sufi teachings, energy work, and modern psychology. Open to Sufi mureeds and DHO initiates, and others by permission – please get in touch and let me know what your interests and experiences are.

These sessions are done by freewill donations.

The meetings are monthly and last up to 1h30min.

You are welcome to take part in the first part of the session and then leave before the healing ritual commences, however please notify me in advance if you are planning to do so ♥

Our topics will include:

• August: our need to be fully present in the body, and the best ways to achieve that

• September: healthy boundaries: how do we get to have problems in that area, how to solve them

• October: how truthfulness, and the lack of it, including to oneself, influences our energy and health

• November&December: how to grow in magnetism, and how to retain it

• January: breaking free from under the control of one’s thoughts

• February&March: self-protection: who needs it, why, when and how to do it

• April&May: learning to connect with our “own” inner healer/inner teacher; connection with the “departed” teachers – what do we need it for, the best ways for “getting in touch”


All the exercises offered are intended as practices – that is, they need to be practiced  in order to bring results. Please do not expect a great change after repeating a technique a few times during the session!

The Light of Purpose

A short course in “Sadhana: The Path of Attainment”

“There is no such thing as impossible. All is possible. Impossible is made by the limitation of our capacity of understanding.” Hazrat Inayat Khan.

December 2022


“Possibility is the nature of God, and impossibility is the art of man.” 

Hazrat Inayat Khan

Many of us genuinely love helping people, be that through healing, therapy, storytelling, through our presence. Yet we know very well that we are also “a work in progress.” We can have many great, connected days, and then there might come some weak, low ones, especially now when the times are so full of uncertainty about the future. We wish we were able to reliably pull ourselves out of that, so that we could return to feeling hope, love, connection with the One Life, and could again authentically share it with others. 

Over three short sessions in December – and in the spirit of getting ready for the turn of the year – I will be offering an introduction to the paper “Sadhana: The Path of Attainment” by Hazrat Inayat Khan, with the commentaries of Murshid SAM.  

What is it that your heart is wishing for right now? Not necessarily a spiritual yearning, could be one of the “usual” life. What if, by achieving what you desire, not only your heart grew in strength, not only your mind got clearer, but also your direct connection with the Spirit of Guidance expanded and became enlivened – and all that started with you going after an “earthly” wish?  

That is what the paper “Sadhana” is about. It is a teaching showing us how to turn our daily life into success – and at the same time, into the advancement in the life spiritual. One who steadfastly follows this path will arrive to the point of becoming a servant of the dream bigger than one’s own, the vision of the Illuminated Souls.  

During the three sessions we will go over the main topics of the paper, some of which are: 

  • December, 1– The role our heart plays in choosing the object we go for. What happens when we accomplish what we wanted. How to “pull oneself out” of weakness, develop resilience and strengthen the heart. What turns the “usual” path of attainment into the spiritual path.
  • December, 8– Choosing the aim to achieve so that there is never a regret. The role of our spiritual guidance on the path of attainment. The external help on the path, when to use it and when not.
  • December, 15– The one thing that needs to be mastered so that one can become “the master of all difficulties.” The main pointers on the road towards any goal. What to do after the achievement.

All sessions will be recorded.    

*Sadhana – root “sadh-,” ‘to accomplish’: attainment, a way of life designed for the realization of one’s highest ideal.
