Event description
A Sufi Whirling Workshop and Sema Gathering, with live/recorded music, meditation, mystical poetry, and whirling.

About this Event

Join us at our monthly Sufi Whirling and Sema Gathering, with live/recorded music, meditation, whirling, Zikr (Sufi Prayer) and Sohbet (Sufi Talk). We will create a sacred, supportive space where we can all release whatever energy no longer serves us, relax and open our heart, body, and mind. We will discover the power and mystery of ancient dances and rituals – a gateway for self-growth and spiritual transformation– through movement, music, love, and stillness. Be moved by beautiful, sacred music.

In response to overwhelming request, the first half hour we will have a mini turning workshop for beginners to learn the practice, including self-focus, breathwork, and more. Thereafter join us in whirling meditation to live and recorded music.

We will be fortunate to have Iranian percussionist Narimann Assadi performing live on daf and oud for our dance via video connection from his home in Sacramento.

This will be an online event only with participation by Zoom conferencing. Suggested donation $10.

Overview

Dance of the Soul is NOT a performance but a monthly Sufi Whirling Workshop and Sema Gathering, with live/recorded music, meditation, whirling, Zikr (Sufi Prayer) and Sohbet (Sufi Talk). We encourage everyone to come participate.

  1. First join for a welcoming circle and Farima will lead us into her unique 4 element breathing meditation or 7 mode music meditation and relaxation.
  2. We will progress into Sufi whirling following facilitation by Farima.
  3. We will close with a Zikr (Sufi Prayers), ancient Iranian Shamanic rituals, sharing, and a gratitude circle

Farima’s teachings are based on ancient Iranic rituals, science of whirling, and the sacred geometry of whirling. We will learn essential techniques of whirling preparation, maintaining balance and posture, controlling dizziness, self-focus during turning, breath work, and more.

Farima’s monthly Sema Gathering offers a unique expression of sacred culture, inspired by nature, ancient Iranic rituals, and the beautiful spiritual traditions of Sufism. We will whirl and journey together to celebrate love, unity, and allow the light to enter our soul.

Open your heart! Listen! Turn, dance, and move in anyway that makes you feel alive!
