She is a senior teacher in the Sufi Ruhaniat International, and also serves as an ordained minister. Halima has been licensed as a Clinical Social Worker since 1980, working in diverse settings; from Nursing Homes, Birthing Centers, and State Hospitals to Private Practices, providing psychotherapy, counseling, supervision, and support to young and old, couples, families, and groups. In her work with people, she integrates the process of personal inquiry with meditation, art, and breathwork. Her personal delight has been the mothering of four wonderful sons, the companioning of her marriage, growing her garden, and nurturing a sangha of fellow practitioners!


"Sufism is the religion of the heart. The religion in which the most important thing is to seek God in the heart of mankind."

Hazrat Inayat Khan

"The Sufi not only prays to God, the Sufi represent God. By this I mean that one not only asks for Love and Wisdom and Joy and Peace, one does everything possible to awaken Love and Light and Wisdom and Joy and Peace in others.
Sufism used to mean 'Divine Wisdom' and so far as Sam is concerned it still does. It means that the Divine Voice constantly comes from within. It still means 'speaking the word that is put into thy mouth.' It still means growth in the states and stages of consciousness
into ever-growing Divine Awareness; and it still means one single Family in the Parenthood of God."

Murshid Samuel Lewis
(Sufi Ahmed Murad Chisti)
Diary, December 1,1967
