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 many olive trees, some fruit trees and we grow organic vegetables.
There is big
round tent, there are beautiful places
to set up tents, there's a wooden hut and a caravan and now there
is a beautiful new house that has just been built, in 2014.
Meditation, retreats, dance and
other spiritual events throughout the year
This powerful piece of land, embedded in 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.
Fascinating and inspiring events
with different spiritual teachers take place over the year.
Roshan who lives at Cala Jami most part of the year is active as
meditation teacher and guide in the International Sufi Order. Almost every day she
offers a morning meditation in the big tent, during the warm season
sometimes on the beach or on the mountain. The regular meditation sessions are
free of charge.

In 2010 - thanks to many donations and a lot of helping
hands - we had been able to inaugurate our new beautiful meditation tent where sessions and spiritual events take place.
The pictures below show an
inspiring and soul-lifting Universal worship in the course of the
three day jubilee celebration in June 2010 (100 years of Sufism in the
West and 5 years of Cala Jami).
The next celebration event is coming closer now: The 10 years Cala Jami jubilee will take place in May 2015, we will inaugurate and bless the new house that has just been built. The picture on the left
was taken in summer 2014, in construction but
already beautiful. The other picture gives an impression of the house when finished inside (January 2015) but the outer refinement and technical installations still need to be done.
financing of the house building worked and the vision of a spacious and
beautiful house came true because of the many inspired and trustful
friends of Cala Jami who support(ed) the project in various ways. Still more help is needed in order to finish the house completely.
Relaxing in the midst of
nature and a sacred environment
Besides the possibility of
participating in events it is also great just to
spend some time amidst
Sardinia's nature and its sacred environment whilst getting new
inspiration from the interesting people whom you can meet at Cala
Jami, or from the almost daily Sufi meditations and weekly evening
In the surrounding area 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.
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 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….
