Perpetual, disciplinal, vital exercises, infinity respiration, eye exercises, body discipline, symmetric and asymmetric movements by the method of divided attention, inner development, rhythmical contemplative movements, and the enchanting, euphoric Sama'a dance.
Sama’a literally means “hearing” and refers to the ability to become attuned to and “hear” the sound which emanates from the source of all. When a real sound is heard a euphoric state appears in the heart of the hearer. Its power will manifest a perfect movement that is called Sama’a. It is generally thought that the Sama’a dance of whirling originated with Jelal-ad-Din Rumi in Turkey. Rumi was originally from the Persian city of Balkh and took refuge in Konya during his early life. The practice of whirling is much more ancient and predates the advent of Dervishism and Sufism by thousands of years.
The practical seminar of Kiyana Movements will be given so that those with interest will have a taste of the nectar of rejoicing.
