The Sufis attempt to practice unity of breath, sound, and movement in the Remembrance ceremony. Unity among the dervishes can bring them closer to God, Who is Unity. Ideally, the dervishes move as if there were only one dervish moving, chant as if one dervish were chanting, and breathe as if just one dervish were breathing.
