Neyestan - Wisdom of Listening

Studying Traditional Wisdom

of Anatolia & Persia

Neyistan studies traditional wisdom of Anatolia and Persia (Turkey & Iran). It is guided by studying music, poetry, movements, traditional-spiritual ceremonies, and Sufi philosophy.

We organize gatherings, journeys, seminars and workshops, for people from diverse backgrounds with a shared interest in Anatolian and Persian wisdom traditions, to be in learning and exploration, in a community spirit.

Listen to the Ney (reed-flute)
storytelling, complaining of separations:

"Since I was cut from Neyistan (reed-bed)
from my throat, men and women have been crying in pain.

Let the heart be severely torn with pain,
so the ache of this longing may be expressed."

Those away from their essence,
will be seeking reunion.
