These workshops allow you to discover Sufi dance through the learning of Samâ, the spiritual listening made of movements nourishing the soul and the body.
This teaching is led by Rana Gorgani, one of the greatest ambassadors of this tradition which goes back to Rûmi, the great Persian mystic 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 inner landscapes.
The whirling dervish dance brings a powerful physical anchoring, a bodily ease in space as well as a feeling of inner stability.
When the poet Rûmi, says:
O day, arise! The atoms dance,
The souls, distraught with ecstasy, dance:
By ear, I’ll tell you where the dance is going.
All the atoms in the air and in the desert,
Know this well are such fools.
Every atom, happy or miserable
Is in love with this sun of which nothing can be said.
It evokes the hidden meaning of humanity and the intensity of our feelings when we listen to the vibration through 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 emotions in the spiral.
Sufi dance is a discipline that requires great concentration, the acceptance of one’s being in all its dimensions but above all: a visceral need for physical emancipation and spiritual elevation.
Also called mystical intoxication, this spiritual art opens the door to ecstasy…
As a tribute to the cosmos, the dancers turn as the earth turns around the sun, creating a continuous circle that reveals the infinity of the universe.
