Welcome

The World Subud Association (WSA) is the umbrella organization for the worldwide Subud community. Members of the WSA are 54 national Subud organizations.
The essence of Subud is a spiritual exercise or training called the ‘latihan’ which is open to people whatever their religion or belief. Through this practice, a person may spontaneously experience inner changes that allow one to be more fully human, more sensitive to higher values and usually manifest themselves in a person’s everyday pursuits.
Subud involves no doctrine and is not based on following a particular leader/teacher; people form their own beliefs based on their personal experiences.
The WSA exists to support the practice and use of the latihan, the human activities that arise from it. The organization is responsible to organize a World Congress every 4 years, it is the congregation of the 54 member countries with many more members to agree on policy and decide on activities and projects that pursue the fulfillment of the constitutional aims of the WSA. The WSA is also responsible to preserve, translate and publish talks of the founder of Subud, Pak Muhammad Subuh Sumohadiwidjojo.
