Advanced Sufi Walking: A 1-Year Journey Towards the Fana and the Opening of the Unity and Ma’rifa

August 21, 2019 @ 8:00 am - August 27, 2019 @ 5:00 pm

A Journey Towards the Fana and the Opening of the Unity and Ma’rifa



Dear Ibrahim, I want to express my deep gratitude to you for leading and guiding an amazing first week of the Advanced Sufi Walking program. I found it amazing that each of the 7 days was packed full of transformational treasures, healing, insights and knowledge. Just when I thought, I was full, another door opened and another personal long-suffering block/wound or picture was released almost effortlessly through your transmissions and the power of this sincere committed group. This week re-awakened my commitment to walking the sufi path. I'm most thankful to have your support and the support of this program. I originally came for only a week, but I'm signing up for the full program, there's no way I can stop now.

Dr. Ibrahim Jaffe created this one year transformational program for those Beloveds who are seeking guidance on walking more deeply into completing their Fana 21 and reaching to the Reality of the Haqiqah or Fana-Fillah


Has uncertainty stopped you from advancing?  It’s natural that you will feel fear that you don't know how or cannot complete these difficult soul stations and enter into the world of the secret.  Ibrahim can help you to overcome these fears through the personal guidance and support of one who has walked through this reality.

Have you experienced that your walking in the soul has been difficult and that you need personal help and guidance to complete these stations?  Many people have found this time to be difficult in their walking. Sidi has said that these soul stations are the most difficult and most dangerous  for it is easy for one to fall down. However, in the container of a group of committed beloveds and with the support of Ibrahim, who has the ability to guide you through these stations, it becomes more possible for completion.


Ibrahim has worked closely with Sidi over the years to help many people cross through these stations. He now feels ready to offer people personal support and guidance to complete these stations.  Reaching to the Fana and Fana-Fillah as well as the opening of the Marifa will be the goal of this course.


A Transformational Program:

This one-year program requires a strong commitment for ongoing, guided walking in the Sufi way.


Included in this program are 3, 6.5 day, in-person advanced transformative sessions.

During these sessions, Ibrahim will include teachings on the secrets of crossing these stations.


During intersessions, homework together with individual and group demonstrations on the nature and witnessing of the soul, opening of soul consciousness, the 99 names and attributes and the purification of this level of consciousness, will be given.

Participants will also work together in small groups with qualified group leaders, to purify the specific veils that limit the walking of the stations.


To truly establish in the worlds of the Soul and the Secret, the practices and teachings will focus on:

* Predominance of Love over all other emotions

* Building Divine Knowledge,  (Al-Ilm)

* Observance of Shari'ah; all practices that purify our outer and inner states

* Embracing of humanity with love, compassion and gentleness


All teachings will be based on the works and books of the Sufi Shaykh, Muhammad Said al-Jamal al Rifai, ash Shadhuli. The two year course work will be based heavily on his books and will include teachings from:

  • Deep teachings of the Quran from Sidi’s Tafsir books
  • Teachings of Gnosis from the book “Reality of Gnosis”
  • Teachings of surrender and purification from “How the Arrival is Realized”
  • Teachings from the Hadith of Prophet Mohammed (sws)- How to live like the Prophet and follow his way. Living the Prophetic vision in all interactions and states
  • The meaning of the Names of Our Lord qualities book
  • Teachings from “Music of the Soul”


Ibrahim will be providing an in-depth assessment for each student during the course. He is deeply committed to holding and healing each participant in the highest way that is most needed throughout the program.
