The Dervish Retreat Center is located on sixty acres of beautiful meadows, forests, trails, streams, gardens, waterfalls and ponds bordering a state park. The center was founded by Khadija Radin, a Sheikha in the Mevlevi Order of America (sometimes known as the Whirling Dervishes) and the Sufi Ruhaniat International. Sufi studies, meditation and Dervish whirling are taught regularly. The Center is closed to the public except for our posted classes and events.
