Taj Inayat is the Vice President of the Sufi Order International, a mystical and ecumenical fellowship rooted in the visionary legacy of Hazrat Inayat Khan. She offers spiritual guidance to those who wish to know the Sufi path of transformation and service to the world.
Taj is a minister of the Universal Worship, which honors all the world’s faith traditions, a pastoral counselor, and also offers individual and group retreats. As a long time student of Sufism, she is adept at working with the inner worlds. Taj guides people in accessing their deepest nature and then living this fundamental presence in their daily lives.
Taj Inayat has immersed herself in the teachings of Hazrat Inayat Khan with passionate dedication since her initiation into the path of Sufism by Murshid Sam Lewis in 1967. Soon after, she met and became the spiritual partner of Pir Vilayat Inayat Khan as he carried forward the Hazrati heritage to a new generation of spiritual seekers. Her many years of close association with Pir Vilayat through teaching and sharing in family life, combined with a life-long study of psychology, existential analysis with Rollo May, private study with Hameed Ali in the Ridhwan School, and her own rich world of inner experience, have given Taj a uniquely personal and practical approach to the Sufi path of awakening. The fruits of wisdom she has developed through a life of challenge and grace, and her many years as a spiritual guide, are offered with presence, humor, and depth. This is a rare opportunity to study with a teacher who ignites the hearts of her students with the living flame of our spiritual legacy.
