Dressing up in Goat costumes for the ancient Dionysian Festival of Boujloud in Aroumd Village, Morocco.
I always thought that Sufism is a form of Dionysian Mystery, and this article seems to back up that idea.
It is difficult to discuss Sufism, as it is a way of practice, not an ideology, where the fundamental alignment rests in Islam, which is primarily the science of the existing fields that a Sufi reunites with. And every union carries with it the nature of ecstasy and experience, which is exactly what Sufi call wine.
The appreciation of wine in Sufism is seen exclusively through the nature of experience, which extols the Sufi, transporting them from one spiritual stop on their path (or from one quality) to another. We can see a similar concept in the early mysteries of Dionysus and Orpheus.
