Jamiat Aam is the Ruhaniat’s annual gathering for mureeds and other seekers. This gathering is open to anyone who feels drawn to discover what Sufism is, and to those who want to deepen in the practices with fellow mureeds and teachers of the Sufi Ruhaniat International. It is an opportunity to Eat, Dance and Pray together.

Join us as we gather at the Dargah of Murshid Samuel Lewis within the beautiful high mountain home of Lama Foundation. The Dargah is the newly completed Sufi shrine constructed at Murshid SAM’s gravesite.

The Jamiat Aam gathering will include: Sufi practices, Dances of Universal Peace, live music, singing, dancing, poetry, vegetarian meals, deepening with community – friends old and new, springtime in the mountains, meditation, contemplation and the night sky… full of stars.

Work-exchange for $100 is available, but slots are limited. Those interested should arrive on Wednesday the 29th for orientation and expect to offer 5 hours of kitchen seva per day. Please contact Kestrel at for more information.
