An open letter from Rila,


More words to be Expressed here, It was an Amazing journey, connection and creation we experienced last year. For the birds who was with us connected transformed and collaborated in many ways that the energy of the feathering is still buzzing. And all of them wished that it was more long.

So here we are! 7 days of Magic Flight!


During my Mystical journeys in Turkey, Iran, India, Israel and South America I was blessed to meet the carriers of light, keepers of wisdom, soul of songs and the healing spirit of Music.

Music is the energy of creation, the way of creators communication and the common language of Love.

It was a big dream for me to gather all this big hearted music lovers in a circle and giving our gratitude through singing prayers dance the life and celebrate the alchemy of The tunes.

Last year this dream has manifested in a beautiful way and now we are going to a deeper level.


This year we will have amazing musicians and healers as well as Elders especially from Anatolia to offer their sacred prayers, and share ancient ways of connection through the wisdom of Sufi Sages and their stories.


You are all welcome to join with your songs, your instruments, your gifts and unique essences to have your place in the circle of our bird tribe to honor The Spirit of love.

The program will be announced soon !





Where is The story of our Feathered Gathering coming from?


“Conference of Birds” is coming from the sufi poet Farid ud-din Attar’s Manteq at-Tair where the seven valleys traversed by the birds in the search of a spiritual mythic King of the birds - Simourg -

The purpose of this journey is to achieve purification. The aspirant has: to

purify his nafs, his personality-self, from its inclination to the desires of the natural man, and substitute these with love

then he must be cast into the flames of passion to emerge in the state of

union with transmutation of self through the gifts of dazzlement and wonder to everlastingness.


­čĽŐ Manteq al-Tayr

(Conference of the Birds)


The bird you see at the visual of invitation is a Hoopoe bird who Led the journey of the birds starts by this call:



Look at the troubles happening in our world!

Anarchy — discontent — upheaval!

Desperate fights over territory, water, and food!

Poisoned air! Unhappiness!

I fear we are lost. We must do something!

I've seen the world. I know many secrets.

Listen to me: I know of a king who has all the answers.

We must go and find him.


The birds of the world set forth in search of their king, Simurg. Their quest takes them through seven valleys in the first of which a hundred difficulties assail them. They undergo many trials as they try to free themselves of what is precious to them and change their state.

Once successful and filled with longing, they ask for wine to dull the effects of dogma, belief, and unbelief on their lives.


In the second valley, the birds give up a reason for love and, with a thousand hearts to sacrifice, continue their quest for discovering the Simurg.

The third valley confounds the birds, especially when they discover that their worldly knowledge has become completely useless and their understanding has become ambivalent. They cannot understand why both the mihrab and the idol lead to understanding. Devoid of their earthly measures, they lose their ability to distinguish right from wrong.


The fourth valley is introduced as the valley of detachment, i.e., detachment from a desire to possess and the wish to discover. The birds begin to feel that they have become part of a universe that is detached from their physical recognizable reality. In their new world, the planets are as minute as sparks of dust and elephants are not distinguishable from ants.


It is not until they enter the fifth valley that they realize that unity and multiplicity are the same. And as they have become entities in a vacuum with no sense of eternity. More importantly, they realize that God is beyond unity, multiplicity, and eternity.


Stepping into the sixth valley, the birds become astonished at the beauty of the Beloved. Experiencing extreme sadness and dejection, they feel that they know nothing, understand nothing. They are not even aware of themselves.


Only thirty birds reach the abode of the Simurgh. But there is no Simurgh anywhere to see. Simurgs chamberlain keeps them waiting for Simurgh long enough for the birds to figure out that they themselves are the si (thirty) murgh (bird).


The seventh valley is the valley of deprivation, forgetfulness, dumbness, deafness, and death. The present and future lives of the thirty successful birds become shadows chased by the celestial Sun. And themselves, lost in the Sea of His existence, are the Simurg.


The birds understood that they are the birds they are looking for.




What is the day of Hidrellez May the 5 th?


This is a Mystical day which has believed that H─▒z─▒r the Prophet who has attained immortality by drinking the water of life (ab-─▒ hayat), and who has reached God, wanders around people from time to time, especially on this first day of Spring when nature stirs again to help people overcoming obstacles and distributes abundance, joy and love.

Since Ancient times the day of H─▒z─▒r(Ruz-─▒ H─▒z─▒r) was celebrated by lighting big fires in Mesopotamia, Anatolia, Iran and eastern Mediterranian countries which have known as the day of intentions.

Rila Ku┼čundan Aç─▒k Mektup


Farsl─▒ Sufi ┼×air Farid Ud-din Attar’─▒n Mant─▒ku’t-Tayr (Ku┼člar─▒n ilahisi) eserinden esinlenerek ba┼člatt─▒─č─▒m─▒z 7 a┼čk vadisinin üzerinden uçarak, ku┼člar─▒n padi┼čah─▒ Simurg’un aray─▒┼č yolculu─čunda

geçen y─▒lki deneyimimiz, kurdu─čumuz güçlü ba─člar ve kutsal yarat─▒m─▒m─▒z muhte┼čemdi. Bizimle bu yolculu─ču deneyimlemi┼č olan tüm güzel ku┼člar ba─člar─▒n─▒ kuvvetlendirerek dönü┼čümler geçirdi. Ruh birliklerine girip evren ve özle ileti┼čimini güçlendirdi. Öyle ki, orada yaratt─▒─č─▒m─▒z enerjinin dalgalar─▒n─▒ hala hissedebiliyoruz. Her ku┼č “ke┼čke yolculu─čumuz daha uzun olsayd─▒” diye diledi ve i┼čte 7 günlük sihirli uçu┼čumuz için yola ç─▒kmaya haz─▒r─▒z!


─░ran, Hindistan, ─░srail ve Güney Amerika'ya yapt─▒─č─▒m mistik yolculuklar s─▒ras─▒nda, müzi─čin ruhu ve ilahi bilginin ta┼č─▒y─▒c─▒lar─▒yla tan─▒┼čmaktan onur duydum. Müzik, yarat─▒m─▒n enerjisi, yarat─▒c─▒lar─▒n ileti┼čim yolu ve Sevgi'nin ortak dili. Tüm bu koca yürekli müzisyenleri ve bilgeleri bir çember içinde toplay─▒p, dua ederek ┼čark─▒ söyleyerek, hayat ak─▒┼č─▒n─▒n dans─▒n─▒ ve büyülü simyay─▒ kutlamak benim için büyük bir rüyayd─▒. Geçen y─▒l bu rüya gerçek oldu ve bu y─▒lki yolculu─čumuzda daha da derinle┼čebilmek için vadilerden geçerek içsel uçu┼čumuzu destekleyecek sevgili arkada┼člar─▒m─▒ davet ettim.


Guzel Anadolu topraklar─▒ndan kadim bilgileri ta┼č─▒yan büyüklerimiz de bizimle olacak ve erenlerin hikayeleri ile yolculu─čumuzu taçland─▒racaklar.

Hepiniz ┼čark─▒lar─▒n─▒z, ilahileriniz,e┼čsiz özlerinizin arma─čanlar─▒ ile ku┼č kabilemizin çemberinde sevginin ruhunu onurland─▒rmaya davetlisiniz.


Vadileri a┼čmak için hepinizi uçmaya haz─▒r kanatlar─▒n─▒z ile bekliyoruz.

Arad─▒─č─▒m─▒z Ku┼člar biziz!




Ku┼č konferans─▒ hakk─▒nda...


Ku┼č Tüylü Bulu┼čmam─▒z─▒n ad─▒ sufi ┼čair Farid ud-din Attar'─▒n Manteq at-Tair (Ku┼člar Konferans─▒) 'dan geliyor. Ku┼člar─▒n efsanevi krallar─▒ndan biri olan Simourg'un aray─▒┼č─▒nda ku┼člar─▒n geçti─či yedi vadiyi anlat─▒rken vadiler nefsin mertebelerini temsil ederler.

Aray─▒┼č, A┼čk, Ilahiyat─▒ derin Anlay─▒┼č,

Ayr─▒l─▒k/ Ba─č─▒ms─▒zl─▒k, Birlik, ┼×a┼čk─▒nl─▒k ve Yüre─čin Bulunu┼ču...

Bu yolculu─čun amac─▒ ar─▒nmad─▒r. Arayan─▒n amac─▒, sahip oldu─ču

nefsini, ki┼čili─čini-benli─čini, insan─▒n arzular─▒na olan e─čiliminden ar─▒nd─▒r─▒p, bunlar─▒ saf sevgiye dönü┼čtürmesidir.

o zaman ortaya ç─▒kan tutku alevleri dökülmelidir.

göz kama┼čt─▒r─▒c─▒ ─▒┼č─▒─č─▒n arma─čanlar─▒ arac─▒l─▒─č─▒yla kendili─činden de─či┼čerek ve sonsuz düzene bir çocuk gibi ┼ča┼čk─▒nl─▒k duymay─▒ ö─črenmesidir.


Manteq al-Tayr

(Ku┼člar─▒n Konferans─▒)


Ku┼člar─▒n yolculu─čunu yöneten Hüthüt ku┼ču yolculu─ča bu davetle ba┼člar:



Dünyam─▒zda ya┼čanan s─▒k─▒nt─▒lara bak─▒n!

Anar┼či - ho┼čnutsuzluk - ayaklanma!

Toprak, su ve yemek üzerinde çaresiz kavgalar!

Zehirli hava! Mutsuzluk!

Korkar─▒m kaybolduk. Bir ┼čeyler yapmal─▒y─▒z!

Ben dünyay─▒ gördüm. Çok fazla s─▒r biliyorum.

Beni dinleyin Bütün cevaplar─▒ olan bir kral ku┼č tan─▒yorum.

Gidip onu bulmal─▒y─▒z.


Dünyan─▒n ku┼člar─▒, krallar─▒ Simurgh’un pe┼činden uçmaya ba┼člarlar. Bu aray─▒┼č onlar─▒ yüzlerce zorluk çekecekleri yedi vadiden geçirir. ─░lk vadide Kendilerinde de─čerli olan ┼čeyleri özgürle┼čtirmeye ve devletlerini de─či┼čtirmeye çal─▒┼čt─▒klar─▒ için birçok davaya girerler. Ba┼čar─▒l─▒ olduktan ve ─▒┼č─▒─ča ula┼čmak için özlemle dolduktan sonra, dogma, inanç ve inançs─▒zl─▒─č─▒n hayatlar─▒na olan etkilerini dondurmak için ┼čarap isterler. ─░kinci vadide, ku┼člar a┼čktan vazgeçerler ve binlerce kalp kurban ederek Simurgh'u ke┼čfetme aray─▒┼člar─▒na devam ederler. Üçüncü vadi ku┼člar─▒, özellikle dünyevi bilgilerinin tamamen i┼če yaramaz hale geldi─čini ve anlay─▒┼člar─▒n─▒n karars─▒z hale geldi─čini ke┼čfettiklerinde kafalar─▒n─▒ kar─▒┼čt─▒r─▒r. Hem mihrab─▒n hem de idolün niçin varoldu─čunu anlayamazlar. Dünyasal isteklerinden yoksun olmalar─▒, do─črudan yanl─▒┼č─▒ ay─▒rt etme yeteneklerini yitirmelerine neden olur. Dördüncü vadi, ayr─▒l─▒┼č vadisi, yani arzudan kurtulu┼ča ve ke┼čfe ç─▒kma arzusu olarak anlat─▒lmaktad─▒r. Ku┼člar, fiziksel tan─▒mlanabilir gerçekliklerinden kopmu┼č bir evrenin parças─▒ olduklar─▒n─▒ hissetmeye ba┼člarlar. Yeni dünyada, gezegenler toz k─▒v─▒lc─▒m─▒ kadar küçüktür ve filler kar─▒ncalardan ay─▒rt edilemez. Be┼činci vadiye girene kadar, birlik ve çe┼čitlili─čin ayn─▒ olmad─▒─č─▒n─▒ Ve sonsuzluk duygusu olmayan bir bo┼člukta varl─▒klar haline gelerek Daha da önemlisi, Tanr─▒'n─▒n birli─činin, çoklu─čun ve sonsuzlu─čun ötesinde oldu─čunu fark ederler. Alt─▒nc─▒ vadiye do─čru ad─▒m atan ku┼člar, sevgilinin güzelli─čine hayretler içindedir, A┼č─▒r─▒ üzüntü ya┼čamak, hiçbir ┼čey bilmediklerini, hiçbir ┼čey anlamad─▒klar─▒n─▒ hissederler. Kendileri bile fark─▒nda de─čillerdir ve Simurgh'─▒n evine sadece otuz ku┼č ula┼č─▒r. Ama hiçbir yerde Simourgh’u göremezler. Asl─▒nda ku┼člar─▒n kendilerinin otuz (otuz) di┼či (ku┼č)un Simourgh oldu─čunu anlamalar─▒ için uzun bir süre beklerler. Yedinci vadi, unutkanl─▒k, aptall─▒k, sa─č─▒rl─▒k ve ölüm vadisidir. Otuz ba┼čar─▒l─▒ ku┼čun ┼čimdiki ve gelecekteki ya┼čamlar─▒, göksel Güne┼č taraf─▒ndan kovalanan gölgeler haline gelir. Ve Varl─▒k Denizi'nde kaybolan kendileri, Gördükleri Simurgh suyun yans─▒mas─▒ndaki kendileridir.




H─▒drellez hakk─▒nda...


Bu mistik gün inan─▒┼člara göre H─▒z─▒r Peygamberin hayat suyunu (ab-─▒ Hayat) içerek ölümsüzlü─če ula┼č─▒p Allaha kavu┼čtu─ču, zaman zaman insanlar aras─▒nda gezerek, özellikle de bahar─▒n ilk günü do─čan─▒n do─ču┼ču ile insanlar─▒n yard─▒m─▒na ko┼čtu─ču, zorluklar─▒ kolayla┼čt─▒rarak bereket, mutluluk ve sa─čl─▒k getirdi─čine inan─▒l─▒rm─▒┼č.

Kadim zamanlardan beri H─▒z─▒r gunu (Ruz-─▒ h─▒z─▒r) büyük ate┼čler yak─▒larak Mezopotamya, Anadolu, Iran ve Do─ču Akdeniz bölgelerinde kutlanm─▒┼č ve günümüze dek dileklerin dilendi─či geleneksel bir gün olarak haline gelmi┼č.
