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.

This evening features live devotional Sufi music from Mevlana Sufi Ensemble!

Suggested donation: $10.00
(pay what you can — no one turned away for lack of funds — the most important thing is for us to gather in prayer — praying together helps the world heal)
