Do you long to nourish your spirit? Are you searching for a spiritual experience that awakens and enriches you? Many of us want to pry open our minds, hearts and souls to a deeper wisdom.
The mystic poets had direct, intimate connections to the Divine. Their vibrant, provocative language helps us let go of mental striving, and cracks us open to a richer truth.
I’ve been leading an in-person mystic poetry group for a while and now I’d like to invite you to walk this transformative path, by starting with Rumi and selections of his work.
Throughout the course I offer guidance in experiencing the rich, direct spiritual life expressed in Rumi’s words. Not only will we read the words, we sit with them, we learn to surrender to the transformative power of mystic wisdom. Letting the words rest in you, and gently opening yourself to hear what speaks to you; this is a contemplative practice.
Mystic poetry has many different facets, and I’ve found that reading the same poem at different times in my life, I encounter new and important meaning.
Who this course is for:
- People interested in Rumi.
- People interested in spirituality.
- People interested in meditation.
