Wanderers, Worshippers & Lovers of Leaving: You are invited to join us for our annual and slightly untraditional Rumi celebration and Sema ceremony — Sunday, December 15, 7:00 p.m. We will be celebrating the anniversary of the mystical poet, Jelaluddin Rumi, who died over 700 years ago in 1273.
Detailed directions to Several Dancers Core are here: http://ithou.com/turn/directions.pdf
The evening is hosted by Bruce Miller who staged performances of the Whirling Dervishes earlier in his career in LA,Vancouver, Boulder and Santa Cruz. Bruce met up with the dervishes as a young man when he met Suleyman Dede, Sheikh of the Mevlevi from Konya, Turkey pictured here.
The evening will include music, poetry and the sacred ceremony of the Whirling Dervishes performed by students who have been learning to turn over the last several weeks.
You are invited to a reception afterward at the home of Bruce and Karen Miller.
