Cappadocia Sufi Whirling Dervish Ceremony
The Mevlevi Sema ceremony is a spiritual journey from the shared truth of the revolving of the cosmos as the action to the God to the transformation of self as a way of union with God, and the return to life as the server of all the creation.
What is the Sema ceremony?
What you will see in the Cappadocia Sufi Whirling Dervish Ceremony is the Mevlevi Sema ceremony which partakes in a very important role in the islamic sufism. The basic foundation of the cosmos is that there is not a single entity that does not revolve. The revolution of the electrons within the core of the atoms to the planets on the orbits, everything in the microcosmos and the macrocosmos revolves. Thus, the Semazens, also known as the Dervishes, as the ones who whirl, participate consciously in the shared similarity of all the existence.
