1st Salaam of Sama: Call to Love
Beloved Dancer, we begin our journey into Sama, the sacred dance whirling in this session. We will begin with a short warmup and explore the technique of whirling before we whirl.
- Please wear soft-soled shoes or socks to whirl. The purpose for this is so you can slide slightly.
- Make sure not to eat a heavy meal 2 hrs prior to session.
- Prepare a place for yourself to sit in meditation after whirling.
- If this is your first time whirling, please make sure to give yourself a minimum of 1 hr after the session to integrate the experience and give yourself a pause before jumping quickly into demanding daily life activities – especially heady activities.
- Don’t drive or operate heavy machinery after whirling.
Happy whirling dive into the ocean of oneness!
