After visiting the tomb of Rumi in Konya in Turkey I became interested in Sufism. Back home in The Netherlands I learned about the teachings of Hazrat Inayat Khan when visiting Murad Hassil in Katwijk. I was immediately drawn to the idea that there is only one Truth underlying all religions. It felt like coming home. I joined the Sufi centre in Arnhem near where I live. After assisting the secretary for the brother- and sisterhood activity for several years, I was secretary for some years. Since 3 years I am the secretary for the Zirat activity of which I have been an active member since joining the ISM.
