Kamila has a heart bigger than life and her laughter is contagious. She meets people where they are and gently provides for them a shoulder to cry on, a helping hand, or a listening ear. As an artist, Kamila has naturally found her favorite modality to provide spiritual care for others as she guides them to discover their own creativity, connect to the Divine and find peace, ease, and insights. She is able to offer a safe non-judgmental space in which people can process their feelings, express their emotions and share their thoughts comfortably, according to their own pace. Kamila is humble, kind, patient, and compassionate. Through the spiritual practices that she offers, she aids her clients to find their own answers within. I'm so grateful to experience an art session with her, and I highly recommend that for everyone.

"Kamilah Barbara Bell, like her name, rings true. She is true to her principles, true to her word, and true to her friends. I have known Kamilah since she came to the Farm of Peace two years ago and have come to rely on her for help in a variety of ways. Her willingness to step in and help whenever help is needed is one of the reasons she is a loved and respected member of this community, living according to the teachings of the Prophet Mohammad, may Allah’s peace and blessings be upon him, and the principles of the Shadhiliyya Sufi order as taught by our Shaykh Sidi Muhammad Sa’id al-Jamal ar-Rifa-i ash-Shadhuli. Kamilah is a bright light in our community, an open and willing participant and a joy to know."

"Kamilah is warm and kind. She created a great rapport and atmosphere from the beginning of the session. It was insightful to make the colour associations and then heart opening and beautiful to have Dhikr recited during the next part. I was happily surprised to see what came up for me."
"Through these sessions I am experiencing more effectiveness in other area of my life such as time management, engagement with tasks and people, and my perception of myself as an artist"
"I feel like I’ve been beautifully expressed. It’s like, ah! It’s all right there. Like, yes, there are challenges and there are gifts, but all the way through your life is the Majesty of Allah. Everywhere."
