"A sufi master and member of five orders, Adnan is founder and director of the Sufi Foundation of America Center based in the Manzano Mountains near Torreon, NM. He was first sponsored in America by the Cathedral Church of St. John the Divine, New York, the Unitarian Society of Whittier, California, and Esalen Institute, Big Sur, California. R.J. “Josh” Reynolds, III was also a major patron and student who helped support the Foundation in its efforts to fight destructive habits like smoking.

"Adnan tours the world conducting workshops and giving concerts at prestigious institutions including the United Nations in New York, St. James’ Church in London, Alhambra Palace in Granada, Spain, the World Congress of Psychology in Switzerland, a grand concert at the Otto Zutz in Barcelona, Spain, the Earth Summit in Brazil, and conferences of Humanistic Psychology.

"By invitation of the United Nations, he opened the Earth Summit in Brazil with a drumming presentation. In 1997, he received a special invitation from the Russian Parliament to present his work in Moscow.

"He leads participants in a wide variety of timeless techniques that signal a connection to the past stretching back twelve hundred years.

"A unique master of drumming, dance, breathing and movement exercises, meditation, chanting and whirling, his special technique heightens concentration, frees the body from tension, and brings harmony, contentment and peace. Each year, Adnan directs an intensive two month summer workshop at the Sufi Foundation of America Retreat Center near Torreon, New Mexico." [1]
