Let yourself be silently drawn
By what you really love.
Dances with mythological themes are models of a timeless, universal order which is based on continuous transformation. Through their form, rhythm and movement, mythical stories are reminders. They refer to the divine impulse which created the world through music and dance. Sound, rhythm and movement are also at the root of our individual lives. Dancing, we may come to remember, so that this ancient knowledge can turn into personal experience.
We will learn dances to themes from The Song of the Pearl (Apocryphal Acts of the Apostle Thomas),The Maya Myth of the Sun Serpent, and from the medieval cycle Traditions of Prophecy which brings us back into present times.
Sufism bases its meditation practices on the repetition of the name of God. The practice is based on the Prayer in Movement of the Mevlevi Dervishes - the Turning - and on 'The Philosophy of the Soul' of Jelal-uddin Rumi (1207-1273), the spiritual founder of the Mevlevi Order of Dervishes.
The Turning is the essence of the Sema ritual, which celebrates the journey of the soul to God.
