Dear Friends on Rumi’s Path of Love,

It has been a while since our last gathering.

As some of you know, I went to Europe and Turkey to be part of Sufi gatherings there.

Particularly important for me was the 16 day-and-night Sema (whirling retreat) near Yalova in Turkey,
and a multi-day trip to Konya, the town where Mevlana Rumi taught and developed the turning meditation.

At Sema, sharing this practice with 300 friends and musicians from around the world, led by inspiring teacher Oruc Guvenc,
created a heavenly atmosphere and took me deeper into the secrets of this truly ecstatic meditation.

This should allow me to add some new ‘flavours’ to our Whirling

A major change to the meditation is that we will be extending the whirling period (while listening to beautiful, pentatonic music).
During which time, simultaneously, some of us might opt for sitting meditation. This allows us to alternate between an active and passive practice.

If you are completely new, please be a little early so as not miss the intro

To be able to unlock the secrets of this meditation technique regularity is very important,
so we will continue to whirl twice per month (alternate Thursdays) for the foreseeable future.
