We warmly welcome newcomers to any of our events.  Most of our local communities offer teachings and spiritual practices designed to purify our hearts so that we can be better vessels of love and service to our brothers and sisters everywhere.  Also, we are very blessed to have our Guide visit us annually.  We gather in larger communities or “Sufi Schools” to experience his presence directly, receive his teachings, and share loving fellowship.  Please feel free to contact us with any questions.  We’re eager to hear from you. 707-965-0700 x21.

About Us

We are a community of students of Sidi Shaykh Muhammad al-Jamal ar-Rifa’i ash-Shadhuli of Jerusalem. Sidi is an extraordinary spiritual Guide who has opened our hearts to Divine Love and dramatically transformed our lives. We are dedicated to embodying and sharing Sidi’s message of peace, love, mercy, justice, freedom, and beauty.  The Sufi way is a path of unity that draws us from all walks of life and every ethnic group. While largely based in North America, we are linked to communities in South America, the Philippines, Japan and Europe.

Jewels from This Path

"Know that love is the basis of all stations (al-maqamat) and states (al-ahwal). All stations are given a rank under it, for it is the means for the realization of every station or the fruit of its fruits, such as will, longing, fear and hope, surrendering of passions, contentment, trust, unity (at-tawhid) and knowledge (al-ma'rifa)."
