A Gathering Place Near Silver City, New Mexico for Those Committed to Inclusive Spiritual Practice

The Southwest Sufi Community (SSC) is a non-profit spiritual Retreat Center, Residential Community, and Nature Preserve located 20 miles north of Silver City, New Mexico, in the high desert Gila Mountains, along approximately 2 miles of Bear Creek. Elevation ranges from 5,200 feet along the lush, green riparian zones to 5,900 feet of hilly pinon and juniper woodlands. The Community is surrounded primarily by National Forest or state land, adding to the profound sense of wild and seclusion that its residents and visitors are blessed to enjoy.

Khankah Gaia Noor Residential Community

The name of our Residential Community translates roughly to, “Gathering place of Earth and Light.” Souls who are sympathetic to the ideals of inclusive, universal spirituality are invited to participate in the simplicity of life at SSC’s Residential Community.

Nature Preserve & Conservancy

We are actively working with The Nature Conservancy of New Mexico to provide conscious stewardship on nearly 1,500 acres bordering the Gila wilderness.

Voice of the Turtle Retreat Center

All are welcome to visit our rustic off-grid sanctuary where one may experience serenity and solitude while on personal spiritual retreat.
