Zikr of Presence

Zikr of Presence

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,  Sufi devotional music and poetry. Read more here.

When grapes turn
to wine, they long for our ability to change.

When stars wheel
around the North Pole,
they are longing for our growing consciousness.

Wine got drunk with us,
not the other way.
The body developed out of us, not we from it.

We are bees,
and our body is a honeycomb.
We made
the body, cell by cell we made it.

~ Mevlana Jelaluddin Rum (trans. Robert Bly)
