daily at 18:00.
- Witness the mystical journey, first made by Rumi, an Islamic theologian and 13th-century poet, representing man’s spiritual ascent through mind, going towards the truth, to be exalted with
love and leave his ego-self behind in order to be polished by God and then come back
as a more mature man.
- Witness a powerful display performed in a trance like state.
- Every spin, every position of the body is a deliberate intentional gesture meant to honor god and embrace his benevolence. The right palm is raised to the sky and the other palm of the hand is directed to earth. It symbolizes what comes from God should be shared with people. During a Sema ritual up to 2.000 turns are made.
