01-Dance of the Heretics - Sufism an Introduction
On the look-out for the whirling dervishes on the vibrant streets of Istanbul
Welcome back to Berkana - your weekend binoculars to find some of the most interesting, obscure, and magical cultural anecdotes from around the world. If you have not read much of my content yet, then let me introduce you to my style - I am a stream-of-consciousness writer. I believe in the lyrical power of prose and hence tire myself to the bone to attain perfection. I love to unearth myriad truths about the human condition, and hence always try to offer the stories as I find it rather than the distorted version served to us cold by mainstream media. Post fact-bombing my readers, I often follow up with commentary on the hidden nuances of culture. Finally, I conclude by exemplifying how the culture in the discussion uses motifs, symbols, art, music, languages, etc as devices to dismantle conditioning. Berkana was created with the vision to awaken our inner courage to change. Berkana is a place for all of us who feel united in our humanity without denying our differences.
