Volunteer and Learn

There is always work to be done at the Center, and time spent with Shaykh Taner and Shaykha Muzeyyen is a spiritually enriching experience, as witnessed by both our local and international visitors. Shaykh Taner and Shaykha Muzeyyen are generally in residence in June and July. Summer visitors to the Center are encouraged to spend a week or more working on a variety of projects under Shaykh Taner's instruction and direction. Please contact Amina Jappie at for arrangements.
