In this workshop we will be doing movement exercises with Sufi chanting and begin learning the practice of Sufi whirling.
We will be sharing mystics poetry and short discussions about Sufism.
This is a physical practice that uses body movements and chanting to open a heart, and experience the Unity of Love in the human body.
We will be given a taste of this Sufi ecstatic experience.
This workshop is open for everybody in all levels of experience.
Come with an open heart, wear comfortable clothing for movement and bring socks.
