Honoring Ramadan at the Hidden Monastery Dance Chapel with Canan Arikan

On May 20th, 2020, a few days before Ramadan concluded for 2020, the Zoom chat box was filled with comments from 7 women from Turkey, 2 from Iran, 1 from India, several Americans and others.


It was at this moment that two InterPlay worlds – Dance Chapel and Sustaining International Sisters(SIS) – were collided to honor Ramadan, a deeply religious time period for Muslims, the religion of Turkish and Iranian friends.
