苏菲教派认为万物都是旋转的,人从出生至去世,都是一个循环,都是一种旋转,于是,他们通过旋转这种舞蹈形式与宇宙和神达成沟通和接触,这种形式被称为“梅夫拉维祭拜仪式”,或“旋转舞仪式”,是一种优雅的灵魂出窍的舞蹈仪式。

提到旋转舞,就不得不提到土耳其旋转舞的创始人杰拉尔丁·鲁米,鲁米是土耳其最伟大的神秘主义哲学家之一,是梅夫拉维教派重要的先知梅乌拉那(意为“我们的导师”)。据称苦修中的鲁米,当年在土耳其的中部城市科尼亚定居时,因听到铁匠铺的敲击声,而感受到了某种神秘力量,情不自禁地旋转起来没有停歇,感受到了与宇宙与安拉的对话。他去世后,他的儿子把他的信徒们组织成一个教徒会,称为梅夫拉维,或旋转托钵僧。
