Tous les 3 jeudi du mois

Join us for our monthly Healing Circle & Whirling practice. We gather to let go of our small selves and remember our divinity within. Through meditation, prayer, drumming, singing, and the whirling dance of the sufis, we join together in unity and experience our limitlessness. Our circles are held on the third Thursday of the month at CRS. This month the Circle will be led by CRS co-founders Yasuko Kasaki and Christopher Pelham and guest Sufi Dance Artist Paola García will join us! Paola García is a New York City based Sufi dancer and member of UNESCO International Dance Council. She received her teaching certification in France from renowned Persian choreographer and dance master Rana Gorgani. Paola has performed in different spaces in New York City, including the Cathedral of Saint John the Divine, Alwan for the Arts, Mana Contemporary, The Outlet Dance Project, and Brooklyn Studio for Dance. She is a graduate of Columbia Law School, a writer, researcher and translator presently finishing a Master’s in Islamic Studies at Columbia University. Originally from Northern Mexico, Paola has lived in New York City for over 15 years and traveled intensively in the MENA region, which she deeply loves. Please feel free to bring your frame drum, rattle, flute, whistle, chimes, singing bowl, or other instrument. You don’t need to be experienced. Together, we will learn to listen to one another, play together, and express ourselves and find Oneness of intention. The participation fee is $20 with advanced registration and $25 on the day of the class. Direct registration link:

https://bit.ly/2KjBq9P Through whirling, we learn to trust ourselves to go off balance, to be dizzy, to surrender control as we give ourselves over to prayer and connect with a greater power, the still center within, around which we turn, that we may share our divine strength and bear witness to the divinity in others. If you are quiet and in a state of prayer when you Turn, offering everything of yourself to God, then when your body is spinning, there is a completely still point in the center… The heavens respond; and all the invisible kingdoms join in the dance. But the world does not understand. They think we Turn in order to go into some sort of trance. It is true that sometimes we do go into that state you call ecstasy, but that is only when we know and experience at the same time. We do not Turn for ourselves. We turn around in the way we do so that the Light of God may descend upon the earth. As you act as a conduit in the Turn, the light comes through the right hand, and the left hand brings it into this world… We turn for God and for the world, and it is the most beautiful thing you can imagine. — Mevlevi Shaikh Suleyman Hyatt Dede
