The Sufi-Centre Cala Jami is situated on
a magnificent piece of land in the north-eastern
part of Sardinia, 3 km
coast. It is an ideal place for
meditation and retreats. The focus is on Sufi
gatherings and events of the International Sufi Order.
But if you would just like to come and spend some time in the powerful
silence of nature here, you are also welcome.
The piece of land is about one hectare and
encompasses a quiet valley, rich with lush vegetation and water. We
have planted olive and other trees and a vegetable garden. There is a
small house, a Moraccan round tent, and there are some beautiful places
to set up tents.
Meditation, retreats, dance and
other spiritual events throughout the year
This powerful piece of land, embedded in an
ancient, light-filled nature, is especially conducive for retreats,
and other beautiful spiritual events. Many
experience the atmosphere and power of nature here as purifying,
healing and awakening.
In 2010 - thanks to many donations and a lot of helping
hands - we were able to inaugurate our new beautiful meditation tent.
The pictures below were taken inside the new tent, during an
inspiring and soul-lifting Universal worship, in the course of the
three days jubilee celebration in June 2010 (100 years of Sufism in the
West and 5 years of Cala Jami).
Relaxing in the midst of
nature and a sacred environment
It is also great just to
spend some time amidst
Sardinia's nature and its sacred environment, and get new inspiration from our Sufi community. In the surroundings there
are magnificent beaches, as well as ancient sacred places. To some people the entire island,
atmosphere of timelessness, is a center of spiritual power. Usually, a
daily gathering and meditation session is offered at Cala Jami.
Participation and support
There are different possibilities to participate and contribute to our project. We are
delighted when dedicated and enthusiastic people come to contribute their
unique gifts, capabilities and ideas. Cala Jami is a place for dreaming
and realising dreams … Once a year interested participants come and meet
together at Cala Jami.
We have “support camps” at Cala Jami, usually in early spring. During the mornings, we work
and create together on the piece of land, enjoying the contact with the elements.
During the rest of the day there is time to relax, take walks,
meditate, make music, cook, sit beneath
the stars, remember the source, and share laughter together….
