The dervishes come from the Mevlevi Sufi Order (Tariqa). This order is from Konya, the central Anatolia region of Turkey. This order was started by Jalal ad-Din Muhammad Balkhi-Rumi. In the west he is better known as just simply “Rumi”. He was a 13th century Persian Poet who is famous primarily for his poetry. Dervishes are famous for their whirling. Which is part of what is called Sama (سَمَاع) – the Sufi ceremony. Whirling done by the dervishes is active meditation. It is not merely meditation though.
