The Sema (whirling dervishes) ceremony represents the mystical journey of man’s spiritual ascent through love and his search for truth and perfection. It is believed that once man has returned from his spiritual journey, he can love and be of service to all creatures surrounding him. Tonight, you have the opportunity to experience an authentic Cappadocian ceremony and witness an ancient Turkish ritual.
Although it is a Persian word, the word “Dervish” has entered the languages of all Muslim nations, essentially it means “needy, poor”.
In terms of mystical meaning “the person who feels that he is in need of the god” called Dervish.
Dervishes are famous with their worship rituals which require the Dervish to spin very fast causing his clothing to fan out in a circle. The men wear large circular skirts to capitalize on this effect.
