Whirling Dervishes Ceremony

The whirling dervishes are of an order founded by the disciples of the great Sufi poet Rumi in the thirteenth century in Konya.
The Dervishes have a meditation ceremony, called Sema, which consists of a male dance accompanied by Sufi music with flute and drums. The dervishes rotate on themselves with their arms outstretched, with one hand facing up and the other looking down, symbolizing "the spiritual ascendancy towards the truth, accompanied by love and totally liberated from the ego". The dervish with his hat (the tombstone of his ego), and his white suit (covering his ego) is spiritually born of the truth. When the black cloak is removed, it goes on pilgrimage and advances towards spiritual maturity through the stages of the Sema ceremony.
With the words of Rumi: "The semá is the adornment of the soul that helps the soul to discover love, to experience the chill of the encounter, to shed the veils and feel in the presence of God."
