Workshops

Give meaning to your dance for spiritual rejuvenation.

These workshops allow you to discover Sufi dance through learning Sama, spiritual listening made up of movements nourishing the soul and the body.

This teaching is led by Rana Gorgani, one of the greatest ambassadors of this tradition which dates back to Rûmi, the great Persian mystical poet of the 13th century.

This spiritual practice is a journey to the center of the self. This exploration opens up sensory perceptions towards new interior landscapes.

The dance of the whirling dervish brings a powerful physical anchoring, a bodily ease in space as well as a feeling of internal stability.

When the poet Rumi says:
O day, get up! Atoms dance
Souls, overwhelmed with ecstasy, dance:
By ear, I'll tell you where the dance leads.
All the atoms in the air and in the desert,
Know this well are such fools.
Every atom, happy or miserable
Is enamored of this sun of which nothing can be said.

It evokes the hidden meaning of humanity and the intensity of our feelings when we are listening to the vibration thanks to the perceptions of our senses.

While remaining faithful to the fundamental values ​​of Sufism, Rana Gorgani leads the participant towards a search for liberation of the body and the emotions in the spiral.

Sufi dance is a discipline that requires great concentration, the reception of one's being in all its dimensions but beyond everything: a visceral need for physical emancipation and spiritual elevation.

Also called mystical drunkenness, this spiritual art opens the door to ecstasy ...

As a tribute to the cosmos, the dancers turn like the earth that revolves around the sun, creating a continuous circle that reveals the infinity of the universe.

WELCOME TO THE CIRCLE!

Mixed workshops open to all.

It is possible to start the workshops at any time of the year.

IN THE EVENT OF CANCELLATION FOR HEALTH REASONS, THE WORKSHOP WILL BE POSTPONED OFFERING THE POSSIBILITY OF CHOOSING DIFFERENT DATE OPTIONS.
