Sema of the Path of Love, the Ceremony of the Whirling Dervishes with a Turkish Sacred Music Concert
On Thursday, December 17, 2015, at 7:30 pm, the Whirling Dervishes of the Mevlevi Order of America will present the Sema Ceremony honoring the great Sufi Mystical Poet, Hz. Mevlana Jelaluddin Rumi, at Portland's Tiffany Center. Led by Makam Postneshin Jelaleddin Loras, the event features the prayer dancing of the Whirling Dervishes, a ceremony presented as it has been for over 700 years. In their traditional  felt hats and flowing white garments, turners whirl in unison, attuning to the music of the heart. Special guest master musician Timucin Cevikoglu from Turkey will play classical and devotional Turkish music, with musicians of the MOA Ensemble from across the United States.  Sponsored by the Middle East Studies Center of Portland State University.


Advance tickets are recommended. Remaining tickets will be available at the door (cash only) for $30 General.  Student and Seniors (with ID) $20 at the door only on the night of the event.
