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.
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.
“Come to the orchard in Spring.
There is light and wine, and sweethearts
in the pomegranate flowers.
If you do not come, these do not matter.
If you do come, these do not matter.”
~ Mevlana Jelaluddin Rumi
