WORDLESS WEDNESDAY




 

 

The whirling dance is a form of meditation, a way of connecting with the cyclical nature of life and the universe in order to reach a higher plane of spiritual consciousness. In Egypt, dancers perform a folkloric dance known as tanoura, based on Sufi whirling dervish tradition.

I have no idea why I said “Turkey”. I meant Egypt. I was thinking Egypt, but my fingers and my brain disconnected )))

I've seen this dance once on a dhow cruise in Dubai.

The dancer was like a human top! I got dizzy just from watching him!
