It’s amazing but true: a 13th century-Sufi poet is now rated the most popular poet of our time.
And it’s no wonder, for as we progress ever more deeply into a multi-faceted global crisis, the words of Rumi offer precious wisdom to help us navigate our way back to the light of the Divine in a way that no other poetry can.
If you’d like to deepen your awareness of the spiritual power of Rumi’s poetry, which can liberate your soul’s passion and your heart’s ecstasy, I have a very special invitation for you.
Mystic scholar Andrew Harvey, renowned author of more than 40 books, will bring alive the core spiritual teachings of Rumi and the mystical initiation he experienced during Dancing in Rumi’s Footsteps: How His Poetry & Wisdom Can Liberate Your Soul’s Passion & Heart’s Ecstasy.
When you do, you’ll:
- Hear Andrew read and interpret two Rumi poems that deal with the dark night and divine passion, two fundamental themes of his work
- Receive the practice of remembrance to experience the full-bodied presence of the Divine inside yourself
- Explore the transcendent love between Rumi and Shams, his spiritual mentor and divine friend
- Better understand the passion that is the great contribution of Islam — and its authentic expression represented by the “inner death” one must experience before embracing and inhabiting the ecstatic love that Rumi so perfectly embodied
Andrew, who is one of the world’s most passionate Rumi mystic-scholars, will reveal the sacred significance of Rumi’s life and work, illuminating why his poems are penetrating the heart of the world as never before.
Join me to see Rumi with fresh eyes and open more deeply to his tender words of devotion to the Divine, which help us understand the great power within the Sufi mystical tradition.
This evening event will be a poetic call to action of the sacred heart that illuminates your own spiritual transformation!
