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.”

If you wish to visit our community in the Bay Area, which now meets in Silicon Valley/San Jose, please RSVP via email and we will confirm and send directions:




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 Kabir Dede and has the right to initiate into the Mevlevi Order.
