Calderdale Peace Dances
We invite you to join us to a journey to the source of mysticism,
visiting Konya, "City of Hearts" in Turkey,
where Jalaludeen Mevlana Rumi and his Dervish teacher Shams Tabriz are buried.
If you are sensitive, you may feel the heart opening vibrations.
Visit beautiful mosques, interesting museums, concerts of the "Festival of Mystical Music" in the evenings,
attend a Sufi Sema (whirling dervishes), immerse yourself into colours and fragrances of the Turkish markets
– and also meet living teachers.
Optional day trip to the grave of Mary, mother of Jeshua (Jesus).
When we first visited the grave of Rumi’s teacher Shams (see photo on the left), we both were moved to tears: such a strong presence!
Mo’unisa Vitalija fell deeply in love with Rumi and has visited Konya several times, made Sufi connections, and loves to share this experience beyond words with you.
Mo’unisa and Ralph will offer some Dances of Universal Peace and Sufi zikr / dhikr.
We will stay in the Dervish Guest House in the heart of Konya and assist you with arranging the journey.
We will provide a programme frame, and also like to follow the flow of Divine guidance each day.
We encourage you to include time for your personal contemplation in Konya.
The Programme will include mystical music concerts in the evenings, repeated visits to Rumi's and Sham's graves during the day, guided walks to mosques, bazar and museums, some Dances of Universal Peace, meeting local Sufis, attending the official sema performance as well as "the real experience", and some time with local translators. You may decide to follow your own guidance and just sit near the grave all day.
Details and more information will follow.
Cost: travel cost to Konya and food are not included (prices are low in Turkey).
We aim for a high quality, low budget journey for a small group of people.
We'll organise and pay a bed in the Dervish Guest House for you and the programme.
We suggest you pay according to your means from £......... to £......... [we're currently calculating]
Next International Airports are Ankara, and Antalya (6 hours coach journey from Konya). There's also a national airport in Konya.
