Light the candles and let them "whirl"…

let them turn

let them spin

let them dance, feel the trance…and if I repeat, even if not all the same, the subject it is just to try to add on a “movement” – a spin!

let yourself feel the “Whirling dervishes” and get to know more about them (if you wish to whirl!)

They are also known as the Whirling Dervishes due to their famous practice of whirling as a form of dhikr (remembrance of God). Dervish is a common term for an initiate of the Sufi path; the whirling is part of the formal Sema ceremony and the participants are properly known as semazen-s.[1]
