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.
