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.

Invitation to Zawiyyah

An Invitation to Come to Zawiyyah at the Mother Center

New Dates: From February 7th to 28th

Since the time of the first Sufi masters, students have traveled to the zawiyyah of their Shaykh to study the teachings of the way and to receive guidance and help in walking the Path to Allah. Sidi Shaykh Muhammad has now established a permanent zawiyyah at the Mother Center in Pope Valley as a place held sacred for this purpose.

Taking knowledge of the way and purifying your body, heart, and soul is an individual responsibility and involvement in this way is necessary. The zawiyyah provides a space where the nafs is free from activity in the lower world and protected from everything that leads to darkness and to extinguishing the light of the heart. It is a place for you to travel, to be alone with your Beloved God. The leader in the zawiyyah is one who has walked the path with the guide and helps to support the student to polish his or her heart, directs the student individually or together with other beloveds to a particular subject of study, facilitating the way of the disclosure of the lights of his Lord, walks with the student on the road, and is available for the questions you need to ask to help you with your walking.

An invitation is open to all those who are students of our Shaykh who want to dive into, and drown in the Ocean of the Way, to take the gnosis from his spirit and understanding of how to walk to Allah in this world and the next, in this way, through his heart and his spirit and his beloveds who follow this holy way.

Please contact me with any question you may have about the time you want to spend there. 415-419-4679 – Amina al-Jamal

If you know and want to come anytime between February 7th and the 28th,  register online here or call 707-965-0700 x 21.   PDF flyer; please share!

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)."
