Sema Gathering and Poetry in Motion

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. We will also be incorporating poems and teaching of Hafez, Saadi, and Omar Khayyam, and learn to incorporate movements to the words of their poetry (poetry in motion). Snacks and drinks will be provided and feel free to bring some of your own to share. 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.

    Because so many newcomers with amazing backgrounds to share arrived to try the Sema and participate it was a very special day. One member brought a bouquet of flowers for Farima making her especially pleased. There was enough time after the Sema to make connections and socialize
