WEEKEND WORKSHOP: A weekend with Rumi

WEEKEND WORKSHOP: A weekend with Rumi

“Come,come, whoever you are.”  A weekend with Rumi.  Working with the wisdom of Rumi’s words

Rumi’s poems and stories are meeting places of the heart. They give the heart eyes, the soul food, the spirit direction. This will be weekend to work with the wisdom of Rumi’s words, to follow the teachings inside his poems and to explore what they address. Like Rumi’s poetry it will feature exercises both playful and profound.

Bring your favourite Rumi poem, or come with no knowledge of Rumi at all. Whatever your starting point you will leave a little wiser, with poems for your life and a compass for the year ahead.

 Rumi is the bread we need to eat” - a Greek priest at Rumi’s passing.
