Individual retreats

in every season in unspoiled nature

According to the alchemical process developed by Pir Vilayat Inayat Khan

Let love guide your soul.
Create a place for it
to retire,
a kind of monastery cave,
a retreat
for the deepest core of your being.
Fariduddin Attar

Individual retreats on Cala Jami

The individual retreat is for those who already have experience in the spirit work. The retreatant retreats to nature, goes into silence and meditates. It is a unique opportunity for inner liberation and ultimately maturation and development of the personality. Ideally, in the retreat process you go through the phases of dissolution (awakening beyond the world) and rebirth (awakening in the world). A retreat guide is available by request to support the process in a healthy direction. Those who are experienced and who want to follow the inner guidance can go on individual retreat at Cala Jami without a personal retreat guide.

Our retreat guides have undergone many years of training in the Esoteric School of the Inayatiyya, a Sufi path of spiritual freedom (previously International Sufi Order) and are especially trained in intuition. The retreat guide every day meditates with each retreatant individually for some time and recommends personal exercises that are tuned to one’s inner being. In this way you will be guided through the retreat, around the cliffs of daydreaming and melancholy, and move forward considerably along the path of your soul.

Ideally, the retreat will give you fresh energy and new inspiration for your regular spiritual practice at home. New perspectives, qualities and possibilities can open up in your life.

Almost at any time it is possible to go on retreat at Cala Jami. Throughout much of the year, Roshan is available as a retreat guide. She usually offers daily guided meditation on Cala Jami. When there are retreatants, the content of the meditation is related to the retreat process. Plus, there are weekly evening Sufi gatherings (‘Sema’) on Cala Jami open to everyone.

At certain times also other retreat guides are available to accompany you on your retreat at Cala Jami, e.g. Faz’l Hermann Stein during the retreat week “The Divine Presence” in October 2023.

Roshan, Sufi Earth Spirit Sardinia, retratguide and Sufi meditation teacher
Roshan, founder of Cala Jami and current president of SUFI EARTH SPIRIT, teaches meditation classes since more than 30 years. As a young woman she studied meditation for ten years under the guidance of an Indian master, then on the Sufi path, enjoying the teachings of Pir Vilayat and Pir Zia Inayat Khan, Munir Voss, Safi Nidiaye and others. She is representative and retreat guide in the Inayatiyya, the Sufi path of spiritual liberty. Roshan practises the “Keys to the Heart” method developed by Safi Nidiaye, a simple and effective way of releasing suppressed emotions.
For many years she lived a very simple life in the unspoiled nature of Sardinia, formerly as a goatherd, organic gardener and mother. Today she still is deeply in love with Sardinia and its unspoiled nature.
“The most meaningful experiences of my life were during Sufi retreats in nature. Retreat and nature – a perfect couple.”

Feedback – individual retreat on Cala Jami with Roshan

“Through Roshans caring, loving and sincere way, I felt well accompanied in the retreat process. With her knowledge of Sufism and her familiarity with the keys to the heart method created by Safi Nidiaye, Roshan supported me in a wonderful way on my inner journey and helped me to take a step further in transforming my negative patterns. The powerful, unspoiled nature in and around Cala Jami with its very special places is a true source of regeneration and strength. The silence, the light, the sea, the rocks, the vegetation, the hours spent outdoors in nature made the retreat on Cala Jami a special experience. In the end I was full of energy, ready for the challenges of everyday life and wishing to return to Sardinia soon.”
