Four of us visited the Museum of Hacibektas after having spent ten days in Istanbul and Konya on a Sufi pilgrimage. Having spent an intimate evening with Bektashi Sufis in Konya, we were quite interested in learning more about their lineage. We were shown a fascinating, older movie clip of a Bektashi sema (men and women). The sema hall had powerful energy and a couple of English translations of Hacibektas' philosphy- "Women and men are equal. If you do not believe this, you are mistaken." The tomb of the saint and the rest of the museum were very moving. One of the highlights of our visit to Cappadoccia and to Turkey.

I knew a bit about Sufism, but was unaware of the Bektashi Dervish sect. I feel fortunate that we stopped at the fascinating Hacibektas museum on our way to Cappadocia. The exhibits are very informative and illuminating about a sect that truly was "before its time." With a focus on unity, this sect emphasizes equality between men and women and the importance of science. They have constructed the museum to resemble how followers would have lived back in the 13th century when the sect began.
