Join us for a celebration of the poetry of Jalaluddin Rumi, the 13th century Sufi saint and mystic, the pir or Guide of Mevlevi Sufis. Suzanne Sturn reads selections of his poetry with flute accompaniment by David Alexander.
An extraordinary Sufi master in his day, now the best selling poet in America, what made Rumi so extraordinary in his time was his insistence that the Divine spark is contained within every human soul, available without need of intermediaries or affiliation with religious institutions. Perhaps in this he foreshadows some of Jung’s central insights.
