Sufi Spiritual Retreat

May 4-7, 2015

with Amina al-Jamal from California


"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. ..."

For those curious about tasting Sufism, or wanting spiritual deepening - come for a part of a day, the whole day or the whole retreat.

Also – Sufi Healing Circle!

Monday, May 4th Sufi Healing Circle; 7:30 PM

free of charge

 Contact us to register and for location  - these events will be held in a private wooded location ouside of town.

"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…” Amina

Amina al-Jamal is a longtime and highly-respected student and teacher of Sufism, as well as the publisher ( of the books of Sidi Muhammad al-Jamal. She has rarely traveled to lead zawiyyah outside California before; we are very blessed to have her come to the Northeast.

The Shadhuliyya Sufi Center Northeast /
Woodstock Sufi Center

The Shadhuliyya Sufi Center Northeast/Woodstock Sufi Center is dedicated to healing and growing through the deep love of God. We serve Woodstock, NY, and the greater Northeast, and all those who are called to return to their true nature through divine love. Though the "technology" we use is Sufi-based, the teachings are universal, and all can benefit, whatever one's beliefs. At the same time we offer study in Sufism for the student serious about deepening their relationship to God in the Sufi way. 

"When you find the love, you find yourself."

We offer classes, Sufi zikr (chanting), spiritual counseling, healing sessions, teleclasses and more, and are affiliated with other Shadhuliyya Sufi centers in New York City, Rochester, Central and Western Massachusetts and Boston, among others, as well as nationally.

Healing in the Sufi way...

Our suffering as human beings  - emotional pain, mental confusion, physical disease, spiritual loss—is a reflection of where we have lost connection with the Deep Love that is our true nature.  Deep healing, joy, peace, harmony and much, much more are available when we return. Our physical health, our state of mind and heart, our relationships, our ability to earn a living and give productively in the world, all improve greatly when we return to love. Ultimately, we contribute to world peace; how can we not when we are nourished by, live from and give love?

Come join us in the glorious journey back to God within the deep heart, and the fruits that blossom from that – peace, love, mercy, justice and freedom.
