Sufi Dancing or Dervish Dance is a beautiful Spiritual Practice, a meditation, a mystical journey of spiritual ascent through mind to God’s Love. It originated amongst Sufis (an esoteric dimension of Islam) and it is a dance, done as a ritual and meditation.
With this ecstatic dance, the Sufi Dancer enters the trance forgetting his Self and becoming united with the Divine Lover. Their dance becomes ecstasy. The Sufi unites with the beloved, and they become the instrument for the admiration of creation. Their heart is filled with passion. Love is the only way to truly experience the beauty of the world. In the ritual dance where consciousness penetrates the body and the mind, the lover joins with the beloved, the dance becomes the dance of Divine Love.
