For over 700 years, each December 17th the Whirling Dervishes have celebrated the “Wedding Night” of the great mystic poet Rumi’s passing from the circle of time—through their legendary whirling prayer-dance, one of the world’s most beautiful and stirring sacred rituals. This year you have a rare opportunity to enter this circle of love as the Mevlevi Order of America presents the prayer-dance (Shebi Arus) of Rumi right here in the Los Angeles area. To the accompaniment of stately yet impassioned Turkish classical music (with sung verses from Rumi), the dervish dancers turn in prayerful surrender, to become vessels for bringing divine blessings to earth. There is truly no way to convey in words how moving and spiritually potent this ceremony is, so we urge you to come and find out. We can’t describe it, but you can feel it!

The whirling prayer-dance will be led by Postneshin Jelaleddin Loras, who comes from Konya where Rumi lived, and who has followed in the footsteps of his visionary father, Hz. Haji Suleyman Hayati Dede, by teaching both men and women the traditional practices of the Mevlevi Sufis. Joining MOA musicians are master Turkish musicians Necati Celik (oud and Middle Eastern lute), Timucin Cevikoglu (vocalist), and Celaleddin Biçer (ney). Celaleddin tours internationally as a Turkish musician, performing in the United States, Bulgaria, Malta, Italy, Singapore, Indonesia, and Malaysia. This is a truly unique opportunity.

In the spirit of the universality of Rumi’s poetry, prior to the sema a stellar group of interfaith activists will step up to the microphone with offerings from the Mathnawi, Rumi’s greatest work. A glimpse at the list of readers confirms the diversity of Southern California’s “pursuers of peace”:

• Swami Atmatattwananda, Vedanta Society of Southern California

• The Reverend Dr. Gwynne Guibord, Officer of Ecumenical and Interreligious Concerns The Episcopal Diocese Consultant for Interfaith Relations The Episcopal Church USA

• Imam Bilal Hyde, founder, The Hilal Institute, California Institute of Integral Studies, and Qur’anic reciter on CD accompanying Approaching The Qur'an by Michael Sells

• Rabbi Steven Jacobs, founder, Progressive Faith Foundation
