Join us for a truly mystical event of divine remembrance, poetry, and whirling. Zhikr is the act of calling upon God through invocation, sometimes loudly to the powerful beat of a drum, at other times softly or silently in the depths of the heart.
Accompanying the zhikr will be recitations of Rumi’s poems of love and longing, and whirling by dervishes from the Threshold Society Mevlevi Order.
This is an interfaith gathering welcoming people of all faiths and none, whether to actively participate or to simply witness this celebration of love.
