SUFI DANCE PERFORMANCE + WORKSHOP

Sufi Dance Performance by Rana Gorgani & Live music

Peter Culshaw presents Music from the Temple of Light witth guest musicians.

Sufi dance is a spiritual practice known as Samâ and is related to “spiritual hearing” in Sufism. To reach the deepest realms of the soul, dancers whirl to the repetitive cadence of music. This universal dance merges body and soul in a journey towards the spiritual light of the heart. Sufi whirling is also called “mystical intoxication” because the combination of music, poetry and dance produces an indescribable feeling of ecstasy. The dancer enters into a trance with the powerful sounds of the music and becomes spiritually inebriated. Sufi whirling is a synthesis of beauty and universal spirituality.

SUFI Workshop

This workshop is based on the Sufi experience of whirling dervishes.

It is accessible to all : men and women.

The practice of Samâ (Sufi dance) can begin at any time of the year. The course starts with a sound meditation work. It permits a better understanding of Samâ, which means spiritual hearing. The first part of the workshop unites three essential elements in order to be able to spin: body, space and time. After having studied the technique of the whirling movement, the workshop ends with the free Samâ. Everyone will be able to experiment this meditative dance.
