Sherif Baba’s intimate Sohbets and Meshks are not scripted; instead, they flow from his unstructured love, enabling participants to embark on an inspired journey through mystic sounds, singing, chanting, exercises, whirling, talks, prayers, and the profound impact of his presence.

About the event
Through his decades of learning, teaching and travel, Sherif Baba brings a message that is deeply grounded in the Turkish Sufi tradition of “sohbet” and ‘meshk’ and universal in its application. Sherif Baba weaves a tapestry of wisdom stories, conversation, wit and humor, illuminating listeners and inviting transformative insight through music and whirling meditation.
Sherif Baba, embodies the spirit of spiritual freedom, and offers a reinterpretation of conventional norms in matters of religions and spirituality. In a world where conventions, rituals, and the superficial repetition of spiritual words have overshadowed the direct connection to a greater wisdom, he brings a fresh perspective and rekindles the essence of inner exploration.
Turkish Sufism is a unique blend of Alevi-Bektashi traditions and Sufi practices, encompassing stories from various traditions. It celebrates inclusiveness and interconnectedness in a time where separateness is putting thorns to our hearts.
