About Us

The Northwest Rumi Festival unites the community in a weekend of wisdom-music, Semā, dance, poetry, art, spiritual practice & spiritual dialog.

We are members of several different Sufi Orders united in our dedication the principles of Oneness exemplified by the teachings of Mevlana Jelaluddin Rumi and Hazrat Shams-i Tabriz. The Northwest Rumi Festival is envisioned as an annual event of both celebration and of service to the human community. We welcome participation by people of all backgrounds, faith-traditions (or none at all), all genders, sexual preferences, and ethnicities.
