Sema of the Path of Love, the Ceremony of the Whirling Dervishes with a Turkish Sacred Music Concert
On Sunday, December 13, 2015, at 3:30 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 Seattle Central Community College Mitchell Activity 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.
