Sufi whirling is a physically active mediation which originated among Sufis, and which is still practiced by the Mevlevi Dervishes. It is a sacred dance performed within the Sema, or worship ceremony, through which whirlers aim to reach the source of all perfection.
What to bring with you: Feel free to bring a poem to share or a drum to play. Please wear white or light colour long skirts or dresses and wear socks or soft soled shoes. Please bring a bottle of water, some chocolate for energy and a towel. You’re also encouraged to bring a journal with you so you can take notes afterwards.
Gulcin has been working as a counsellor for over 5 years and facilitates personal development groups.
As a Sufi, Gulcin also enjoys facilitating Sufi gatherings in Manchester where people come together to whirl, meditate, drum and chant. Whirling is a great way to enter the higher intelligence of the heart.
