About Us

The Shadhiliyya Sufi Center , also known as the “Mother Center,” is the headquarters and main retreat facility of the Shadhiliyya Sufi Communities,  a network of Sufi communities of students in the United States and abroad (known in Arabic as murids) of the shadhiliyya order led by Shaykh Sidi Muhammad al-Jamal.

Besides United States, we have our international Sufi communities in Canada, Mexico, South America, the Philippines, and Japan as well.

The Shadhiliyya Sufi Center regularly offers educational programs that are open to all. Programs are a great reason to visit the Center, meet the community and spend time in the peaceful grounds of historic Walter Springs (where we are located) and the surrounding area.

One of our East Coast facilities, known as the The Farm of Peace/Sufi Center East, located in Pennsylvania, also offers retreats and Sufi programs to its regional community.
