The Mevlevi Order of America welcomes all to our public Estag'furullah Zikr on the first Monday of the month beginning at 7:30pm in the Ballard Odd Fellows Hall, 1706 NW Market Street in Seattle. Zip 98107. http://rumiseattle.org/
The Seattle Circle of Mevlevi invites you to join us for this beautiful prayer of forgiveness, redemption, music, Love, movement in Unity, reaching out to each other and the entire world in the spirit of inclusion, grace and beauty of Hazrati Pir Mevlana Jelaluddin Rumi, peace and blessings upon him and his worldwide family.This special prayer in movement and music is from the inspiration of Postneshin Jelaleddin Loras, founder of the Mevlevi Order of America. Throughout the evening we invoke the Forgiveness of God for all of our shortcomings by singing the word "Esta'furullah." This expression is similar to the asking of Forgiveness within the Christian Lord's Prayer, and the annual Yom Kippur request of God to Forgive humanity within the Jewish tradition. Many other spiritual traditions also practice prayers of Forgiveness.
This gathering is welcoming of all people of any spiritual path or no spiritual path.Dress modestly, yet comfortably for ease of movement, wear thick socks for floor movement as this gathering is fully participatory... If you cannot physically participate, do not worry, there are many comfortable benches around the room that you may rest upon while still being included within the prayer circle.Follow this link to the Mevlevi Order of America website to discover more about Rumi's spiritual tradition: www.hayatidede.org. The MOA is a not-for-profit educational organization.Cost: Love Offering
