‘Stop acting so small. You are the universe in ecstatic motion.’ – Rumi

Sufi whirling (or turning) is a form of moving meditation in which spiritual symbolism runs deep. As the dervishes turn, their bodies echoing the motion of the planets, they are emptying themselves in order to receive and channel divine grace.

Even if this is your first encounter with Sufism or whirling, you’re invited, with love, to join Rumi’s Circle to explore the origins and symbolism of this sacred tradition. This practical workshop is accessible to all, offering a chance to witness a demonstration by dervishes from the Mevlevi Order founded by Rumi and to learn the basics of the whirling technique.
