Zikr of Presence

Join us Monday, August 19th at 7:30pm:


“True Zikr makes you forget everything but the Beloved”
 (Hazrat Abu Sa‘īd ibn Abil-Khayr, Persia, d. 1049 CE)163594_10150951550750805_2032897270_n

Through recitation of the divine names, music, and movement, with a heart torn open and longing, the Sufi seeks to remember God, to part the veil between Lover and Beloved, to dissolve into the Sea of Oneness.

All new and old friends are warmly invited to join the Seattle Mevlevi Circle this Monday, August 19th at 7:30pm in Ballard as we continue a traditional practice intended to deepen spiritual intimacy. In remembrance,  we will move, chant, sing and whirl through transformative and ecstatic states as a community.

Where: Ballard Odd Fellows Hall (1706 NW Market Street 98107 http://www.seattleoddfellows.org/)
