Rumi’s poems and metaphors are beautiful, wise, and also precise. We will let some of them inspire our exploration of our own experience. In presence, meditation, and gentle enquiry, we will deepen contact with our true nature.

                "We are the mirror, as well as the face in it."


How interesting and amazing that the number one selling poet in America today is a 13th century Sufi mystic by the name of Jelaluddin Rumi! In his time and still today, he was loved and respected by Jews, Hindus, Christians and Muslims alike. Rumi was a scholar and master of the Sufi tradition. In his poetry, he calls to us from beyond the concerns of institutional religion and limiting beliefs. A clear, powerful voice of divine, ecstatic love, he awakens us to the possibility of a direct and intimate relationship with the Divine. We see that not only could God be our Beloved, but that we are the beloved of God.

"In this workshop, we will learn about Rumi as an impassioned seeker of the truth and love. He produced a prolific range of inspiring and devotional poetry that encapsulates the union with the divine. His prime message is that God is found in your own heart. His poems expressed the deepest longings of the human heart for its beloved, for the intimacy with the divine. In Rumi’s vision, love is the very nature of existence. Love is what moves life. All matter in the universe obeys the law that movement is due to an inbuilt urge (which Rumi calls "love") to evolve and seek enjoinment with the divinity from which it has emerged. One of Rumi's greatest themes is how love grows and matures for those on the spiritual path. Bring your favorite Rumi love poem, join in or just listen."
