The Kassam Family

Noorish is a family-owned community-operated venture created by a trinity of siblings who have been passionately immersed in conscious living, holistic health, spiritual evolution and community development within Edmonton and internationally for over a decade.  Sheniz, Ayaaz, and Adil were born and raised in Alberta with ancestral roots that run back through Africa, India, and ancient Persia. To celebrate the rich history of their lineage, they chose the name Noorish which carries within it the root word “noor”, meaning divine light in Arabic. Noorish is recognition of our deeper connection to that light which sustains and animates us all.

Each sibling has a unique professional history of entrepreneurism and a deep interest in crafting sustainable communities that value co-creation and honour the earth’s abundance. Having explored more than 70 countries combined, they have cultivated a wealth of cultural wisdom garnered from their experiences volunteering at ecovillages, retreat centres and organic farms around the world.

This trio has drawn together a vibrant team of individuals with expertise in raw foods, healing nutrition, organic food production, yogic traditions and cafe management. We are excited to bring you Noorish – a vortex of positive energy, euphoric culinary concoctions, and enlightening events to noorish the body, mind and soul.
