The Threshold Society welcomes people interested in Sufism to our center in Louisville, Kentucky on certain Thursday evenings.
These gatherings begin promptly at 8:00 PM and run for about two hours and typically include silent meditation; sohbet, “spiritual conversation,” often on the subject of a monthly theme; music; and the form of chanting known as zhikr, “remembrance.”
THE THRESHOLD SOCIETY ALSO HAS BRANCHES IN OTHER LOCATIONS:
These are people who have been recognized for their maturity, devotion, and creative contribution to the Society and the Mevlevi tradition. A Khalife has the full support of Shaikh Kabir and Camille, and has the right to initiate into the Mevlevi Order.
