Community Gatherings

“Thy music causeth my soul to dance;  in the murmur of the wind, I hear Thy flute…” 
— Hazrat Inayat Khan

Throughout the year, we come together to mark significant anniversaries and to be with friends in community. Our community gatherings usually involve a potluck meal, music, songs, story, dance, poetry and prayer. Often we gather on the anniversary of the passing of an important teacher or saint. This event, called an “Urs,” celebrates the departure of a person from the earth plane to a reunion with the Source of Being.

We celebrate three occasions related to the life of our founder, Pir-o-Murshid Inayat Khan: the anniversary of his passing (Urs) on February 5, his birthday on July 5, and the anniversary of his voyage to the West in 1910 on September 13.

See the calendar for upcoming community gatherings.
