a community of lovers
SUNDAY 20th DEC 2020, 12PM EST / 5PM GMT
We are delighted to bring you Rumi’s Urs 2020 – online! The unique circumstances of this year have allowed us to organise a global Urs gathering with our international community.
Celebrate Mevlana Rumi’s union with the Beloved – the anniversary of his passing into the Unseen – with an online gathering of remembrance. Join Shaikh Kabir & Camille Helminski and Mevlevi Whirling Dervishes for zhikr, music, and poetry on the theme of The Heart of Stillness.
Join us on Zoom: https://zoom.us/j/435138208
Zoom passcode: threshold
Please note this takes the place of the regular Threshold Sunday meditation.
This event is being offered for free. If you would like to support our activities please donate by PayPal here.
TO FACILITATE THE BEST VIEWING EXPERIENCE
We will be spotlighting several screens in the speaker view so you can see multiple whirling dervishes turning. Please ensure you are in SPEAKER view rather than gallery view to see all the dervishes.
Please note Mac users will need to update to the latest software (5.4.6) to allow viewing of multiple spotlight views. Check your update here: https://bit.ly/37ajzQ1
Please note: the multiple spotlight view does not work on mobile devices, therefore we recommend you use desktops/laptops for this event.
If you have not used Zoom before, please allow time to install and test the software before the meeting time.
This is an interactive experience. We welcome all friends who may wish to whirl, whether you have robes or not, to join in. You may wish to create some space for turning, perhaps light some candles and have some red roses or rose incense/oil.
Download the Urs 2020 programme. Contains all the poetry for the evening including song lyrics so you can join in!
