Explore Sufism in New Brunswick

Feb 26, 2015 04:45PM
Sufism, the inner mystical dimension of Islam, is an experiential understanding of the Non Dual Reality which lies at the very center of Islam itself. Students on this path are known as Sufi dervishes.

Tragically, terrorists groups have tainted the American vision of Islam. The religion, whose cornerstone is set in peace, has now, ironically, become associated with violence. The original intention of Muhammad, the prophet of Islam, was a world rooted in harmony, justice, ecstasy, devotion and love. This is the world that the dervish aspires to live in and co-create.

Come experience the world of the Sufi and join in the Zikrullah, the sacred Sufi ceremony of remembrance. Rev. Annmarie “Zhati” Agosta, LCSW, offers Sufi gatherings at the New Brunswick Quaker Meetinghouse on the first Saturday of every month. The next gathering will be held on March 7 at 5:30 p.m.

Rev. Agosta is a long time activist in the LGBTQ, feminist and peace movements and is a senior dervish of the Nur Ashki Jerrahi Sufi Order International as well as an ordained Interspiritual Minister of the One Spirit Interfaith Alliance in NYC. She is founder of Authenticity Psychotherapy in East Brunswick.

Location: New Brunswick Quaker Meetinghouse, 109 Nichol Ave., New Brunswick. For info, see, call 732-955-6178 or
