According to the explanation provided by the event's host Sufi Bookstore, meditation is a form of training the mind, with the goal of achieving better focus and quietness, eventually reaching a higher level of awareness and inner calm.

The guided meditation will help actors “focus on getting into the character's state of mind, understand the character [they] are playing, and act effectively.”

Meditation is often used to benefit creative practices as it is believed to enhance creativity, confidence and presence of mind.

The session will be led by Cherihan Ayman (Cheri), a filmmaker and certified instructor of Ashtanga yoga, Vinyasa flow, Pranayama and meditation.

Opened in 2012, Sufi Bookstore is also a café and art space that organises live music performances, film screenings as well as yoga and art therapy sessions.

Participants are asked to wear comfortable clothes, and reserve in advance by calling one of the following numbers: 0114 4515953 or 0109 4088155


Saturday 9 January at 7pm
Sufi Bookstore, 12 El-Sayed El-Bakry Street, Zamalek, Cairo
