Time:  7:30 PM
Venue:  Main Hall, ICCNC, 1433 Madison St., Oakland

The Dervish tradition of whirling and sacred Turkish music provides the foundation of the Mevlevi 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 Order of America comes from the inspiration of Suleyman Hayati Dede and through the guidance of his son and successor Jelaleddin Loras Dede.  Their mission is to be a living embodiment of the Mevlevi Way, in the spirit of inclusion, equality, unity and love,  through sharing the teachings of the great 13th century poet and mystic Hz. Mevlana, known in the West  as Rumi.

Your are invited to participate in this dhikr lead by the Mevlevi Shaikhs snd Shakihas:  Hadi and Shakina Reinhertz, Jemaluddin Val Brown, and Susan St Thomas. The devotional Turkish music will be provided  by The Mevlevi Mutrip ( Musical Ensemble) composed of Shaikh(s) Jami Walsh, Oud,  Nur Jemaluddin  Henke, Ney and Salih Bloombaun, Bendir.
Teachers in training and semazens ( turners) will be will be part of the evening in service to our caravan of Love.

"Come, come who ever you are, wanderer,  worshipper, lover of leaving, ours is not a caravan of despair. Though you have broken your vows a hundred times.. Come, come again!"    Hazrati Mevlana Jelaleddin Rumi

About "Doorway to Islamic Civilization: Hands-On Workshops on Islamic Art & Culture"

Islamic civilization boasts an intellectual, artistic, and cultural heritage that spans continents and centuries.   The gradations of shape, color, taste, texture, and sound that exist within and between Muslim peoples and cultures are as rich and diverse as their ideas and attitudes, as well as their languages, races, and ethnicities.  Out of this fertile and potent mix of elements emerged artforms and practices that can enrich and beautify our lives.

Zawaya thus launches an original event:  "Doorway to Islamic Civilization", a weekend collection of hands-on workshops on Islamic art and culture set against the current social backdrop of Islamophobia.  These workshops are meant to give those interested the opportunity to get to know Islam and Muslims by providing a safe space within which to explore and experience the Islamic sense of beauty embodied in art, crafts, music, architecture, and more.  In addition to the workshops, there will be a film showing of "Islamic Art: Mirror of the Invisible World" followed by a panel discussion between the filmmaker, Michael Wolfe, and Islamic art and architecture experts.  The Mevlevi Order of America will also be present to offer a Dhikr (a devotional act) by Mevlevi musicians and dervish turners.

This event is co-sponsored by The Afghan Coalition, The Arab Cultural and Community Center of San Francisco (ACCC), Arab Resource and Organizing Center (AROC), Aslan Media, The Center for Islamic Studies at the Graduate Theological Union (GTU) in Berkeley,  Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR-SFBA), Interfaith Coalition for Immigrant Rights (CLUE CA), Islamic Cultural Center of Northern California (ICCNC), Islamic Network Group (ING), and Ziya Art Studio.
