A workshop on poetics & Sufi whirling.
Explore the intoxication that comes from drinking the wine of a different tavern. Make way for epiphany as ancient mystic poetry empties you of yourself. From meditation to spontaneous acts of literature and performance, this workshop will end with an introduction to Sema, the dance of the Mevlevi Whirling Dervishes, whose inspiration comes from Persian philosopher and poet Jalal Ad-Din Rumi. Requirements: passion, patience, paper, pen, relaxed clothing and good socks. *Please bring a water bottle
