Family Zawiyah

Bring the family to experience Zawiyah together.

Come be refreshed by prayer, practices, nature & reflection.

While parents enjoy time in Zawiyah, kids will have the opportunity to explore Sufi teachings through art, movement, play, prayer and dhikr.

Inshallah we will explore & deepen the embodiment of our fitra,
“The innate purity of every being as we were created in the image of our Creator; also, the measure of truth in our actions and in our being and our quality of harmony with the cosmos!”
Music of the Soul

Established in 2003, The Farm of Peace is the heart of the Shadhuli tariqa on the east coast. Follow a mile-long drive down a gravel lane and you will find 150 acres nestled between other farms, state game-lands, and the stunning foot hills of the nearby Allegheny Mountains of south-central Pennsylvania.
A two-hour drive from Washington, D.C., Baltimore or Pittsburgh, the Farm of Peace features a retreat and healing center, a working farm and a spiritual community; offering a holy space to deepen our spiritual walking, uncover the beauty and the secrets within our deep heart.
The International Airports that serve our area are Washington Dulles International (IAD) and Baltimore/Washington International (BWI). For domestic travel Ronald Reagan Washington National (DCA) is also an option. All three airports are within a two-hour drive.
We can help you coordinate airport transfer from/to BWI, DCA and IAD. The fee is $110 each way, paid to the driver in cash. This service is offered by community members, between the hours of 9 am and 6 pm. If you must arrive outside this time frame, please contact us to see if this can be accommodated.
