Bohemian love for Moroccan homes. I have Moroccan roots which have always pulled me towards this rich culture and heritage. I went to Morocco once and saw some of the beautiful things this country has to offer: An eclectic, colorful, rich, and delicious atmosphere. Sufi tradition is ripe in Morocco.
During days when I was tired of shopping and concerts, I used to go to a small Sufi Mosque in Casablanca to spend the day in meditation. Throughout the day, men would chant Sufi ‘zikr’ in unity. They entered the Mosque with their white hooded kaftans, sat in a circle and repeated: ‘Allahumma Sallee Wa Sallem Ala Sayyidina Mohammad-en wa Ala Alihi wa Sahbihi Wa Sallem.”
Going to a Sufi ‘Hadra’ (gathering for the remembrance of God) is an experience out of this world. That time in Morocco a few years ago was the beginning of my official journey in Sufism.

After dozing off at the small Mosque, I went shopping. Old habits die hard.
