The Naqshbandi Sufi Order of Australia


The Naqshbandi Sufis are mystics, believing that one’s journey in life is the path of the return to God. Mysticism is concerned with developing one’s abilities and capacity through emotional, intellectual and physical practices. They respect all genuine traditions of belief and faith which seek to accept the responsibility of humanity to care for each other and our world.

They offer weekly meetings for talks and discussions, Zikr ceremonies, and training in the Whirling Prayer Ceremony. Currently they have active circles in Melbourne and Sydney. All people, of any religious or spiritual tradition are welcome to participate in these practices and classes.
