Who we are
The Shadhiliyya Sufi Center Minnesota is a group of people who have come together under the direct guidance of our guide and teacher Sidi Shaykh Muhammad Sa'id al-Jamal ash-Shadhuli. It is our intention to live by and carry on the teachings and traditions of Shadhiliyya Sufism as taught by Sidi. Our mission statement is "to witness the Divine Unity of God's creation in deep service through the teachings of the guide of the Love, Peace, Mercy, Justice and Freedom.
The Shadhiliyya way is a straightforward way for coming into direct experience and knowledge of God. As those following a Sufi path, we strive to "see" the Reality of God's Existence within all creation. Our goal is not merely having the knowledge which one can gain from books but truly living in this Reality moment-by-moment. We attempt this through prayer, supplication, work, service in community, family and personal lives.
Healing in the Sufi way
As human beings our suffering and pain - emotional pain, mental uncertainty, physical disease, spiritual restlessness - 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 more are available when we return to the Unity which is the source of all life. Our return to the Love manifests itself in our physical health, our state of mind, an open heart, caring and fulfilling reationships and our ability to live productively in the world and give generously to help make our communities healthier and happier. Sufism offers us a doorway to return to who we are as brother and sister in God and creators of peace and reconciliation in the world.
We invite you to join us for an experience of this way. Please come to any of our teachings, classes or healing circles (prayer, meditation and chanting done in a group), or attend an event we may be putting on. All are welcome regardless of race, color or religion. Sufism is a path of attraction, not conversion. Come and find out whether the attraction of your heart is calling you.
Please contact us with any questions or with any interest you mayy have in the classes, teachings, workshops or gatherings listed on this website.
