Event Information


Sufi School East  is a beautiful time to be together with people from all over the nation and the world who come to enjoy the teachings, delicious meals, fun for kids, camping and filling our hearts with joy. 


Our theme this year is Living from the Heart: Finding Peace and Sharing Hope. If you are seeking a way back to peace and hope in these turbulent times, then we have the weekend for you!


Sharing their wisdom this year are Sufi teachers Salima Adelstein, Marz Rida Attar, Dr. Abd al-Haqq GodlasHalima Abdullah al-Jamal, Ibrahim Jaffe, Amany Shalaby, Kamila Shenmen and Abd al-Qadr Davies. Come and expand your understanding of ancient Sufi teachings as taught by our beloved guide Sidi al-Jamal, may he rest in peace.


Newcomers to the Sufi way will again participate in the Path of Love program taught by Kamila Shenmen, Co-President and faculty of the University of Spiritual Healing and Sufism (USHS), and Abd al-Qadr Davies, faculty and Co-chair of USHS’s Spiritual Peace master’s program. The newcomer’s “Path of Love” program is tuition free for those who attend the entire program.  Begins Saturday Sep 2 at 8:30 am at the International Peace Center and ends 12:30 pm Monday, Set 4.  Please note: Friday attendance is not required for the free tuition offer, but  a Path of Love program will be offered beginning at 1:30 pm on Friday, after lunch for those who wish to join us then.


For Sufi Teachers — This year, in addition to our usual classes on Sufism, the murshids will be meeting with all teachers, master teachers, naqibs, muqaddams, murabbis and murabbi Ruhis to discuss our roles, responsibilities, challenges, and direction moving forward. We invite all teachers to come and participate in this new endeavor.  These teachings will take place each day throughout the retreat.  


‘Eid al Adha Prayers and Celebration will take place Friday morning at 9:30 am, in case you’d like to come and join us!  ‘Eid al-Adha marks the end of the Hajj pilgrimage, and is celebrated with morning prayers and dhikr, followed by a feast (lunch)!  Everyone is welcome!  Sufi School officially begins at 1:30pm, after lunch.


Welcoming hearts await you! We pray you can join us for this blessed event. Please forward this message to your community, friends, family or anyone you know who might be interested in learning more about this sacred healing path of Sufism.


Please save the date and join us for what we hope will be an amazing event.  We pray that you will join us again as we gather for Sufi School East on Labor Day Weekend at the Farm of Peace.
