The “Turn” of the Whirling Dervishes – Part 2

Performed by Hafizullah Chishti

The “Turn” is a moving prayer/meditation done by the Sufis. It possesses a most ferocious power to unite and integrate all planes of our being, from the densest materiality of the body to the transcendence of pure Spirit.

The music and chant in this clip is traditional, and performed live by Amir Vahhab, a specialist in Sufi music.  Filmed/Performed in the U.S.

I am a spiritual guide in the Sufi tradition and a “lineage-holder” in the Sufi school brought to the West in the early part of the 20th Century by Hazrat Inayat Khan. I have walked, stumbled, crawled, and danced this path since 1976 and taught it for about 20 years. I am based in Seattle, where I focus a circle of seekers in the practices that lead to spiritual awakening.
