Sound healing works on many different levels. Leading practitioner, Sandira Michael, plays Tibetan gongs and crystal singing bowls. With the body relaxing totally, their sacred sounds allow us to let go and connect with our true selves.
The Study Society Dervish Turning and Sufi Poetry
In the 13thC. poet and mystic Jalaluddin Rumi established his Dervish order and the whirling dance of the Sema. This potent method of experiencing both inner stillness and opening the heart, the Dervish Turning was brought to the Study Society by a Turkish Sheikh in 1963 for us to care for, nurture and teach it, and we do. A Sufi poetry sharing followed by an open Turning Ceremony are held at The Study Society the first Friday of every month.
Vedic Chanting and Meditation
Known thousands of years ago, the recitation of the hymns of the Vedas is a sophisticated form of music and one of the oldest of unbroken oral traditions which remains to this day.
The Study Society’s Colet House Vedic Chanting Group meets on Monday evenings followed by a half hour’s silent meditation.
We hear music from these sacred dances, exercises and prayer which bring stillness in movement. Originally collected from across the Middle East and Central Asia by I.Gurdjieff, the Movements have been taught at the Study Society for over 70 years.
