Zikr is a practice of prayer using synchronized chanting, music, and movement. We invoke specific spiritual energies through sound and intention. In the Zikr of Presence, we move deeply into the Mevlevi path, coming together to remember God through whirling, prayer, and Sufi devotional music and poetry. This is a traditional form of zikr, common to many Turkish Sufi orders and practiced since the time of Muhammad.

We begin at 7:30 and welcome you to join us. Most nights, we have time to chat afterwards over tea. 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 by simply sitting and being present with us.

Suggested donation: $15.00 (no one turned away for lack of funds)

You have no need to travel anywhere.
Journey within yourself,
enter a mine of rubies and bathe
In the splendor of your own Light.
~ Mevlana Jelaluddin Rumi
