The center is place of historic significance in Napa County, and traces it’s roots back to 1871 when the healing water springs were first discovered.
While the bath-houses have long since disappeared, the healing tradition continues with programs and workshops on spiritual healing in the Shadhiliyya Sufi tradition. The center is also used by many guests and visitors who stay for individual silent and spiritual retreats, or those simply looking for accommodation that suits their spiritual outlook.
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.
