Important Notice: No visitors until further notice.
Ramadan Mubarak!! We are holding our annual Ramadan retreat online all month long. See the full calendar.
In response to the Covid-19 pandemic, Napa County’s Public Health Officer has issued a Shelter At Home Order ammendment effective at 12:00 AM on April 22 , 2020 that will continue until otherwise modified. Therefore, SSC is closing the Mother Center to outside visitors at this time in order to comply with this order and to protect the beloveds living at the center until further notice. We look forward to reopening and welcoming you as soon as it is safe to do so. Peace & blessings and may Allah keep you all safe, inshallah.
Welcome to the Shadhiliyya Sufi Center
“The name of this land is “The Land of Peace and Love.” Why this name? This name is for the beloveds who come to live here, to hold peace and love. This means the one who carries the real love and peace. Allah shows me that everyone who comes here comes because he is very thirsty for peace and love. Not only for himself, but he wants to carry the peace and love for all the people everywhere in this world. These, my beloved children, are the seeds of this tree.” Sidi al Jamal The Religion of Unity, p.295
Our retreat facilities are free from worldly distractions, resting on 118 acres of open land with inspiring views full of natural beauty and majesty. Wildlife abounds, birds sing praises and our community calls the prayers for Allah. The Center is surrounded by springs, trees, meadows and mountains that exude an uplifting spiritual presence.
This creates a unique environment for prayer, retreat into zawiyyah through remembrance, studying Qur’an, contemplating Sidi’s writings and sufi practices. This unique facility hosts healing intensives, personal retreats and other programs for those attracted to the teachings of Sufism and Sidi Muhammad al Jamal.
The SSC Mother Center Residential Volunteer Program is now open and accepting applications.
Create, live and work in spiritual community as it was envisioned by our guide, inshaAllah.
In the Name of God the Most Merciful the Most Compassionate, the door has opened and guidance made clear for a Residential Volunteer Program at our Mother Center here in Pope Valley, California. This very special program will offer a unique opportunity for students of Sidi, and provide much needed support for the Mother Center and our greater community, inshaAllah. Click here for more info.
