These classes emphasize clearing the heart in order to become a channel between essence and embodiment in the whirling prayer practice. Rumi’s poetry and teachings are shared along with the techniques of the Turn. We incorporate aspects of the Sema (whirling ceremony) into the class as we develop group attunement.
We welcome new and continuing students of the whirling prayer practice. We endeavor to set aside our personality and limitations and open to the Presence. We attune in prayer, poetry and Remembrance to prepare for our physical practice by acknowledging the greater field of Being.
Bring some socks for sliding on the floor and wear comfortable clothing. Water as well.
From our inspired guide, Jelaluddin Rumi
It’s lucky to hear the flutes for dancing coming down the road. The ground is glowing. The table is set in the yard. We will drink this wine tonight…”
Essential Rumi, Coleman Barks
