  • … in Pankisi Valley

    I stayed in Pankisi Valley in december 2011 for few weeks, and in April 2012 I came back just for two days in order to document zikr. This prayer and ritual involves the recitation of the names of God. Usually, in sufi brotherhoods or turuk (plural form for tarika) take part only men, but in Duisi (Pankisi) we can find an interesting case (though not exclusive) about a sisterhood.
