images (2)

Monday, October 7th at 7:30pm, please join us for our transformative circle prayer practice of Remembrance. Together we will activate the divine healing attribute of Forgiveness through devotional music and movement.

All are welcome! If this is your first time, please wear comfortable, modest clothing and thick socks for ease of floor movement. If you are unable to stand in the circle or engage in the physical movements, know you can still fully participate while sitting.

The Estag’firullah Zikr is intended to be a spiritually healing experience. Please open your heart- the need is great. We sing and move together in prayer to polish our hearts, clarify our minds, and remember that we are intimately connected to God. Here we have a way to open our hearts and hands to the source of healing, and to all in need.

Feel free to invite friends whom may be interested.

The Mevlevi Order of America offers cultural programs, open workshops, and public presentations in the spirit of inclusion, equality and love, under the inspiration of Suleyman Hayati Dede, and the guidance of his son and successor Postneshin Jelaleddin Loras.

 

Zikr of Presence on Sept. 16th

Join us Monday, September 16th at 7:30pm:


“True Zikr makes you forget everything but the Beloved”
 (Hazrat Abu Sa‘īd ibn Abil-Khayr, Persia, d. 1049 CE)5cilt sekill

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, September 16th 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.
