Ottawa Centre of The Inayati Order sufi order

Remembering The Sacred


We are a group of people in the National Capital area who are actively involved in the creation of an environment that supports members and community under the guidelines of an open-minded, spiritual vision, which does not discriminate based on religious form.

  • the essential teaching is the unity of all of existence towards the goal of embodying noble qualities such as beauty, such as harmony, and of course, of unconditional love.
  • teachings are offered based on traditional practices in breathing, sound, and light.
  • we seek to follow in the footsteps of the beings who inspire us, in those better able to manifest the attributes we would wish to cultivate in ourselves.
  • As specified by the founder of our order, Hazrat Inayat Khan, "There is One Holy Book, the sacred manuscript of nature, the only scripture which can enlighten the reader."

The Winged Heart

The symbol of the Sufi Order is a heart with wings. The heart rises on the wings of perfect love and perfect freedom.
