“You have no idea how hard I’ve looked for a gift to bring You.
Nothing seemed right.
What’s the point of bringing gold to the gold mine, or water to the ocean.
Everything I came up with was like taking spices to the Orient.
It’s no good giving my heart and my soul because you already have these.
So I’ve brought you a mirror.
Look at yourself and remember me.” ~ Mevlana Jelaluddin Rumi
The mission of the Mevlevi Order of America is to be a living embodiment of the Mevlevi Way, through sharing the teachings of the great 13th century poet and mystic Mevlana Jelaluddin Rumi. We offer cultural programs, open workshops, and public presentations in the spirit of inclusion, equality, unity, and love, under the inspiration of Suleyman Hayati Dede, and the guidance of his son and successor Makam Postneshin Jelaleddin Loras.
Mevlevi Order of America Seattle Circle shares open circle gatherings on the first and third Monday of each month. Check back regularly to view our upcoming gatherings: RumiSeattle.org.
