A weekend with Paramjyoti C. Stieber (dancer and founder of „Infinite.dance“) and musicians Mehmet Ungan (ney, oud, voice) and Daniel Haas (percussion).

He who knows the dance, resides in God!
Rumi


Course content

Dive into the mystical world of Whirling and Sema (Sufi ritual). Experience an approach that honors, transmits and goes beyond the traditional form, origin and spiritual path of Sufism, represented by musician Mehmet Ungan.

Our practice emphasizes on the heart. We connect with THAT, which is dearest and most essential to each of us.
Individual prayers emerge, form a common prayer and support the collective. Sema is the experience and celebration of what truly moves us.

Throughout the course, Paramjyoti offers individual coachings. You are welcome to bring questions, jump over shadows and "travel without feet" (quote from a poem by Mevlana Rumi). Experience the mystery of dance!

Prerequisites

Attendance at an introductory weekend or a private class by Paramjyoti or previous experience in Sema is required.

Remark11 hours.

Bring

Comfortable clothing. A water bottle if needed. Warm, well-fitting socks or even dance shoes with leather soles if you feel more comfortable in them. If you have a long wide skirt, feel free to bring it.
