About the University

The University of Spiritual Healing & Sufism is a non-profit, religious organization that envisions a world where the flag of God’s love, peace, mercy, freedom, justice and beauty flies above every home.

Founded in 1990 as the School of Energy Mastery, founder Dr. Robert Ibrahim Jaffe, MD, began providing heart-centered energy healing instruction to thousands of students. In 2000, Dr. Jaffe formed The Jaffe Institute, a nonprofit church, and began teaching spiritual healing and transformation based on the teachings of Shadhiliyya Sufism as brought to our organization by Shaykh Muhammad Sa’id al-Jamal ar-Rafa’i ash-Shaduli, affectionately known to us as Sidi.

In 2005, The Jaffe Institute gained religious exemption status through the California Bureau for Private Postsecondary and Vocational Education, and became The University of Spiritual Healing & Sufism through the Religion of Unity in the Way of God – we call it The University of Spiritual Healing & Sufism or USHS for short.

We now offer Masters degrees in Spiritual Ministry & Sufi Studies, Spiritual Peacemaking in the Sufi Way, and in Spiritual Healing & Counseling. Grounded in the teachings of Shadhiliyya Sufism, these degree programs help our students discover their personal missions and take the teachings out into the world, and in service to others.
