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 Summer School celebrates the living way 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. No prior experience is necessary except a heart open to wisdom from the world’s many traditions.

All classes are conducted in English and German.

Seminar house Proitzer Müehle

Our gatherings take place in Protzer Müehle in North Germany, in the hills of a nature reserve park of the Elba River.  Surrounded by  forests, meadows, and lakes it is an old water mill, whose history goes back to the 14th century.

The buildings are on a 10-hectare site and have been remodeled to a high standard. It is now a venue for spiritual seminars and dance groups.

The main house features a large dance hall with a wooden spring-floor, where we hold our main sessions. Two more meeting rooms provide us with the opportunity to have a few classes running simultaneously.

The area provides a lot of opportunity for spending quality time outdoors, weather permitting. Be that a long walk along the fields and even into the forests,  a courageous dive in a local pond, or simply dining al-fresco or just having a cuppa at one of the many sitting areas around the mill, fresh air of the German countryside gives us a pleasurable  summer experience.

The venue has plentiful accommodation in the main house, as well as in two newer houses. Most of the rooms are en-suite, and those that are not share a bathroom with one or (more rarely) two other rooms.

A few single rooms are available, the majority of rooms are double, and some are triple (although we aim to fill them to capacity only when absolutely necessary.)

Camping in one’s own tent is also a possiblity, as well as staying in a bigger shared (dormitory style, a.k.a “The Mattress room”) accommodation.

Vegetarian meals are as abundant as they are amazingly delicious. Over the years many have noticed that clothes seem to shrink by the end of the seminar, so this might be something to be conscious of.

If you have different dietary needs, the kitchen will be able to accommodate vegan, gluten free and dairy free diets pretty easily.

There is plenty of space, both indoors and outdoors, to spend time over a meal with friends or if one so chooses, to have a quiet contemplative dinner.
