Sufi is a semi-annual journal for those seeking to understand the key messages of Sufism and devoted to the study of mysticism in all its aspects. The journal presents articles about literature, history, poetry, philosophy and practice - irrespective of religious denomination. Sufi examines closely the spiritual, social, and ethical principles by which sufis teach harmony and humanitarian values.
Sufi also addresses the subtleties of psychological and heart-related issues by presenting mystical poetry and prose that help the student of spirituality seek out, confirm, and perceive unity in all creation.
Sufi provides both a unique forum for those engaged in spiritual practices as well as a vehicle for scholars of religious and esoteric studies interested in furthering the understanding of Sufism and its relationship to other great spiritual traditions.
Sufi is devoted to the study of mysticism in all its aspects - literature, history, poetry, philosophy and practice - irrespective of religious denomination. We welcome submissions of written and artistic works for publication in the journal.
