Overview

The performance of Sufis (or semazen) is called a Sema. The Sema ritual is a form of Sufi dance and was born out of Rumi’s inspiration. In the Sema, semazens, who are also called “whirling dervishes,” whirl—not to self-induce a trance, as some believe, but rather to reflect universal truth, that everything in the existence revolves: electrons, moons, planets, entire galaxies; humans live by the circulation of the blood in our bodies, by the cycle of the seasons, and by the stages of our lives; we come from the earth and we return to it. Program starts with video introductory film and the classical Turkish music concert performed by a traditional orchestra for 15 minutes. Then the ceremony starts and lasts about 45 minutes under the amazing lighting and mystic atmosphere of Hodjapasha. Complimentary beverages service is available before the performance.
