This book work is an homage to the poetry of the 13th century Sufi mystic Mevlana Jalaluddin Rumi, the founder of the Mawlawi Sufi order of Whirling Dervishes. 2007 was the 800th anniversary of Rumi’s birth and he is a man whose time has come around again; his life and work were dedicated to love, mystical ecstasy and service.

Rumi created the “Sema”, the Dervishes’ turning, sacred dance. In the Mevlevi tradition, Sema represents a mystical journey of spiritual ascent through mind and love to perfection. In this journey the seeker symbolically turns towards the truth, grows through love, abandons the ego, finds the truth, and arrives at the “Perfect”. The seeker then returns from this spiritual journey with greater maturity, so as to love and to be of service to the whole of creation without discrimination against beliefs, races, classes and nations.
