Whirling Dervishes: The Mevlevi Order of America

The Dervish tradition of whirling and sacred Turkish music provides the foundation of the Mevelevi dhikr (devotional act).  The Estaughfur'llah Dhikr is a dynamic living prayer of forgiveness and remembrance of oneness, integrating chanting, movement, and music as a participatory experience. 

The Mevlevi are mystics, believing that one's path is to God. Mysticism is concerned with developing one's abilities and capacity through emotional, intellectual, and physical practices. They firmly reject the actions of those who pervert the words of God to justify violence for political ends. 

The Mevlevi Order of America is also known as the Whirling Dervishes. Their mission is to be a living embodiment of the Mevlevi Way, through sharing the teachings of the great 13th century poet and mystic Hz. Mevlana, known in the West as Rumi.
