The Kalyan Center, a Sufi Universalist center at Bradenton, FL, was founded in 2016 by Rev. Sura Charlier, in response to the current need for spiritual training and community which is creative, awakening, collaborative, mutually empowering, fully embodied, and service-oriented.
Individual practice and participation in community are essential parts of spiritual growth. The Kalyan Center offers the opportunity to expand realization and actuation of the authentic Self through classes, contemplative dialogue, individual and group retreats, worship services, social events, and community service projects; all in an atmosphere of warm friendship on the spiritual path. Participants who are interested, may also work on an individualized program under the guidance of a trained spiritual teacher who is insightful and deeply caring.
Sura serves as a Senior Teacher, Guide, Retreat Guide, and Healing Conductor with the Inayati Order, and as a Minister of the Universal Worship Service. She facilitates classes and seminars that promote greater illumination, realization, physical/psychological/emotional healing, actuation of human potential, and healing of our relationship with the earth and with one another.
