The Friends & Family program, an annual event of the JI School of Spiritual Healing & Sufism (ÂJIÂ), gives participants the opportunity to experience first-hand the process of spiritual healing through the Sufi way. This free day-and-a-half program of spiritual development and personal growth with JI students and faculty will be held in beautiful Lake Arrowhead, California, on April 15-16, 2005.
The program officially begins on Friday morning at 8 a.m. and concludes at 12:30 p.m. on Saturday. Visitors are welcome to join the faculty and staff on Thursday for dinner beginning at 6 p.m., and stay the evening to enjoy the annual fund-raising auction and entertainment.
Friends & Family participants from previous years often report experiencing profound spiritual transformation during the 36-hour event. The program offers many opportunities for spiritual exploration and growth, including introductory classes, healings by students, interaction with the faculty and students, as well as access to other programs and events such as an auction, entertainment, and more. Founder and spiritual director Dr. Robert Ibrahim Jaffe teaches some of the classes.

The JI School of Spiritual Healing & Sufism is a non-profit organization dedicated to fostering global peace through love, healing, service, and leadership. The school trains people who want to combine scientific, emotional, and spiritual approaches to healing. Through teleclasses, workshops, and programs, the school offers its students exercises, tools, demonstrations, and Sufi practices that are the path to living oneÂs highest truth.
The JI is committed to global peace through love, healing, service, and leadership, beginning with each person's heart. The aim of the school is to heal the world, one heart at a time. Participants in the Friends & Family program will have every chance to explore how the JI School of Spiritual Healing & Sufism can support students in helping to create global peace.
Dr. Jaffe and the faculty follow the Sufi path, a 1500-year-old heart-based spiritual tradition. Students from many different spiritual and religious traditions attend the school and are welcomed openly and lovingly. Sufi practices are offered and taught. Students report that the training enhances, deepens, and enriches their own personal spiritual practice and relationship to the Divine. The JIÂs aim is to give each student the understanding and tools necessary to embody the love, peace, mercy, and compassion of God.
Sufis, mystics who long to serve God, have long been known as world servers, helpers, and healers. The Sufi message is one of peace, love, mercy, justice, and freedom for all the people of the world.
As Dr. Jaffe say, "The Sufi way is a very beautiful way. It is the way of seeing God in everything, so that everything is valued in its perfection and loved as if it were God. All of the healing work is ultimately done from that perspective."
