Advanced Sufi Spiritual Healing Practitioner

A Level 3 Program

Become an Advanced Sufi Spiritual Healer

A Call to All Healers!

In the Advanced Sufi Spiritual Healing Level 3 program, graduates of our Level 2 program will continue to refine their healing skills using the APIIR-TB technique and Quranic healing methods.

Students of this program will engage in intensive personal healing while experienced Master Healers guide them towards accessing the deeper soul levels within themselves and within their clients.

This program will deepen a healer’s ability to harness the light of God to help clients’ witness and “clean” subconsciously-held distorted beliefs that lead to pain, feelings of disconnection, and physical and emotional disease.

If you would like to learn more about how to heal in the soul realms, please join us for this very special program, where Ibrahim Jaffe, MD, MD(H), DD and Sharifah Judith Keith, PhD, MDiv, RN will share some of the most valuable tools and techniques for healing in this deep way.

“Even though I do not have a medical background, I was empowered to heal more deeply and  step into my healership. This course taught me who I really am, beyond the limiting beliefs and generational woundings.

For my dissertation, I wrote about my patriarchal line back through to my great grandfather and about the addiction to cigarettes and the COPD and lung cancer in my family.

From this healing, there will likely never be another tobacco user in my family.”

– Maryam W.

Ibrahim founded the Jaffe Institute in June 2000 to bring his comprehensive synthesis of medical, energetic, and spiritual healing to professionals and lay people who want to heal in a complete and holy way by deepening their understanding of why people become sick and what can be done to resolve their illness. The Institute has grown over the years and is now known as the Institute of Spiritual Healing and the University of Sufism.

“Through the program, my perception, trust, and transmission of Allah’s light became so much stronger. I now use these practices and teachings in my acupuncture practice. This work has become one of the greatest joys Allah has given me.  After a week in class with Ibrahim, I came back to give a healing to a client and found that everything changed.

I felt that I was able to walk very deeply and find true healing for very deep places in my soul on a personal level. I also feel like my healing has deepened in ways that were unimaginable.

What I will say is that if you are on the fence about the class, go.

I recommend this class from the depth of my heart.”

– Laila E.

Course Descriptions: Advanced Sufi Spiritual Healing Practitioner

801 | Development of the Healer as an Instrument in Allah’s Hands

2 credits

This course complements the core curriculum and brings students deeper into being the hands, eyes, ears, and tongue of Allah, first by learning what a Real Healer is, and then through learning and experiencing the deeper aspect of Dr. Jaffe’s healing method, APIIR-TB (Alignment, Problem to Pattern, Images, Issues, Resolution, Teaching, Beautification). The students will use this healing method with themselves and with clients (others) and will learn to heal their own issues that interfere with receiving clear guidance and to give what is needed for effective healing of the other person (clients). They will learn how to contain strong emotions and energies within themselves and others and how to be fully present and aware, both on the outer and inner, in all situations.

802 | Creating and Maintaining Healing Relationships

1 credit

In this course, students learn how to give and transmit as well as to listen to verbal and non-verbal communication and to respond appropriately while holding the person’s heart. There will be an emphasis on clinical interviewing and assessment in both the outer and inner realms, as well as on developing an on-going healing relationship with the client in both realms. Client follow-up care will also be discussed.

803 | Ethical and Professional Issues in Working with Others

1 credit

Students will explore common ethical issues in healing such as the creation of appropriate boundaries, when to touch, refer, and learn to handle their own material as it arises in the healing relationship. They will also learn the most appropriate manners and ways to interact with medical professionals, within medical institutions, and with alternative/complimentary health care professionals and providers so to provide best holistic care. Strategies for Self-Care, including love and mercy, will be delineated.

804 | How to Analyze Subtle Influences that Affect Health and Well-Being

2 credits

Students will develop their abilities to perceive (hear, know, feel, see, smell, taste) subtle influences on the body and mental states, learning how to use their perceptions to direct a person with loving speech into a deeper connection with Allah, a deeper awareness of the inner hidden concerns and wounds, and a deeper understanding and willingness for healing with a return to well-being.

807 | Prophetic Medicine III: Approaches and Methods Within the APIIR-TB Method

4 credits

In this class students will learn to use different APIIR-TB approaches such as starting within the body (PAD: Peripheral Ascent Descent), or the Malakut (MAD: Malakut Ascent Descent), or the Jabarut (Divine Qualities Ascent Descent), or asking Allah for His Divine Order (DAD: Divine order Ascent Descent). Students will also learn to ask Allah for guidance in every moment and to follow the guidance, being prepared to use in addition, the Sufi practices of Tawba and Remembrance, recitation of Divine Qualities, Sidi’s healing methods, surahs, litanies, ruqyah, traditional prayers, and worship used for healing to help dispel influences that cause illness and to bring their clients face to face with Allah.

808 | Prophetic Perspectives on the Creation of Health and Illness

4 credits

This course focuses on the nafs, its role in the creation of illness and distress, and the traditional methods of purifying the nafs. Teachings, explorations and experiences are provided to understand more deeply the roles of the heart, soul, and spirit on preventing illness and returning health through spiritual healing. The deeper knowledge of veils, mirrors, divine law, signs, witnessing, bowing, and surrender are opened for understanding and subsequent utilization in healing. Students will arrange healing sessions with people with a variety of illnesses, researching the Western understanding of the disease, along with complementary and alternative understandings of the disease, and then learning through direct experience how these illnesses are held in the body, heart and soul and the ways spiritual healing can intervene and return health.

809 | Clinical Topics in Healing

2 credits

Students will develop a deeper understanding of common issues that bring clients in for healing. Among a variety of physical illnesses including major organ and systemic disease, cancer, and auto-immune disease, other topics that will be explored include trauma, addiction, shame, unworthiness, depression, and anxiety. The role of forgiveness in the walking and the healing will also be a focus.

810 | Spiritual Topics on Stations and Ma’rifa

2 credits

This course explores the identification and walking of the stations by the students. The gifts and effects of the stations upon the potential strength and power of the healings are studied and opportunities to experience this reality are provided. Ma’rifa teachings include the opening of Ma’rifa, the blocks encountered, the illusions that may be present, the nature of divine meanings and knowledge, identification of decrees and order, and the relation of the levels of Ma’rifa opening with the higher stations.

812 | Zawiyah

8 credits

A personal retreat offers a setting wherein students can open their hearts to transformation so to be more deeply the instrument in Allah’s hands and therefore be more effective healers.
