Sufi gatherings in London – UK
A variety of Sufi meetings are hosted regularly in London. We have a monthly programme, “Connecting to the Divine” for those who may be less familiar with gatherings of invocation and mediation, as well as fortnightly gatherings with a fuller programme of litanies and invocation. A summary is below, but for more information please do email us, we look forward to welcoming you.
Connecting to the Divine: Monthly Men’s and Women’s Circles
We invite those who are searching for a means to find contentment in their heart by drawing closer to God, to join these circles.The programme is designed to enable those familiar with Sufism, or those who are not, as well as people from all faiths, or none, to be able to participate.
We look forward to welcoming you and encourage you to spread this message to your friends and family who may be searching for a path of love, mercy, and spiritual education.
