About Your Guides for this Journey
Dr. Ibrahim Jaffe is a physician, Sufi Master Healer, and Spiritual Guide pioneering Medical Spiritual Healing (MSH) – the integration of western medicine and spiritual practice to heal disease and improve health and wellbeing. After studying and witnessing healing from many spiritual healing traditions, Dr. Jaffe discovered the spiritual healing of the Sufis.
He found that the Sufi healing led to the deepest inner transformation of the heart and soul and addressed the most subtle and hidden forms of disease. For this reason, he chose to apprentice for 20 years with one of the leading Sufi Masters and Healers of the century, Sidi Muhammad Al-Jamal, Guide of the Shadhiliyya Sufi Way. Through his apprenticeship, Dr. Jaffe’s own illnesses were healed. As he mastered the deep teachings of his Guide, Dr. Jaffe was recognized by Sidi as a Sufi Murshid, or Guide, and a Master Sufi Spiritual Healer. He was given permission to teach spiritual healing and Sufism worldwide.
Hadrat Sam Jaffe was raised in a Sufi zawiyya as a child. At the age of 17 he moved to Morocco to begin studying Islam and Arabic. He lived in Fez, Morocco for about 3.5 years. After he completed his bachelor’s degree in Islamic Studies at the Markfield Institute in England, and completed his Master’s in Islamic Studies at the University of Chicago. There he specialized in medieval Andalusian (Spanish) Islamic mystical thought. Currently, he lives in Istanbul, Turkey where he continues his studies in religions, philosophies, and mysticism.
He and a colleague from Harvard have also compiled a guidebook to the graves of the saints of our lineage that will soon be published.
