Open to all and no experience needed.
Learn Sema (Suﬁ whirling) meditation in a few simple steps. This method allows people of all experience levels to turn for a sustained period with ease while listening to sacred and Sufi music. We will also learn music meditation and healing while listening to natural sounds around us such as water, wind, or various live instruments.
In the first part of the gathering we will learn and discuss mystical Persian poetry and teachings of Rumi and Shams. Please wear white or light colored clothing and wear socks or soft soled shoes. If you wish to turn avoid eating a large meal 1-2hrs before.
A sliding scale donation of $10-25 is greatly appreciated to help cover the cost.

"I attended a Persian Dance Workshop this weekend along with poetry, live music, and some performances. We practiced Sufi whirling. It was truly a magical experience. With the help and guidance of Farima Berenji, I was able to whirl quite comfortably for much longer than I thought I would be able to. And it felt so good."
