My Video Interview With Dr. Ibrahim Jaffe on Principles of Sufism

August 29, 2010

Dr. Ibrahim Jaffe

It was my pleasure, privilege and honor to interview Sufi healer Dr. Ibrahim Jaffe about the principles of Sufism. I’ve known Ibrahim for a dozen years and I always enjoy our discussions. He is a man of great love and wisdom and I am always happy to share his insights and loving energy with others.

The following interview was conducted on August 25, 2010. I asked him six primary questions about Sufism. Because we wanted each of the questions to function as a standalone video, each video begins with an introduction and an opening prayer.

Here is Ibrahim’s bio:

Dr. Ibrahim Jaffe is a licensed medical doctor, as well as a spiritual teacher and a gifted master healer in the sufi tradition. He is the leader of the Shadhiliyya Sufi order in the United States, and the founder of both the Shadhiliyya Sufi Center and the University of Spiritual Healing and Sufism. Ibrahim lives in northern California, where he continues to teach, travel and work on his forthcoming book.

I was fortunate enough to attend one of Ibrahim’s weekend workshops back in 1998 and I can attest that the experience was life-changing. The lessons I learned about love and healing in those three days still resonate deeply within me today and inform much of my work.

Many thanks to Pat Aylward, Ibrahim’s loyal devotee in Minneapolis, who arranged the interview and supplied the questions. Thanks also to Steve Walsh, who provided the video equipment and technical expertise.

Here are the six videos, which range in length from nine to sixteen minutes. Also included is a two-minute bonus video in which Ibrahim shares a story that illustrates the inherent perfection in apparently less-than-perfect events. (more…)
