What You Seek Is Seeking You: Conversation of Soul, Heart and Spirit the Wisdom of Rumi
About This Event
Rumi is one of the most beloved and widely read poets in the world today. Born in 1207 in Persia, Rumi was a genius theologian, poet, and scholar whose writing is as fresh today as it was eight centuries ago. A passionate seeker of love, truth and wisdom, Rumi composed an impressive 70,000 verses which have touched the hearts and minds of people from nearly every religious and spiritual tradition.
This retreat will explore the central spiritual themes in Rumi’s poetry, including love, loneliness, letting go, bewilderment, and meeting challenges. We’ll explore mindfulness practices that can help us embody on a daily basis the wisdom that Rumi expressed so powerfully. The day will include storytelling, lecture, meditation, small group conversation, simple whirling practice as a moving meditation along with the sounds of the Native American flute and the opportunity to try some Persian calligraphy. Bring a journal.

As always, a delightful evening!. Thoughts: 1. May want to publish an agenda in future. Not wise to be fashionably late. Reports were that the event was in full swing at 6:30 PM and 6:45 arrival felt like we were catching up. 2. Would be wise to provide the wifi information so everyone could connect for the text fundraiser. Verizon worked but several people near me said that they could not connect using ATT. The wifi would allow everyone to connect See you next year!!

The Copper Beech Institute offers a wide variety of courses, meditations, workshops and is housed on a beautiful peace of property. I enjoy the Wednesday Candlelight Meditation as a group or 30-40 of us meet to share this mindful experience and are led by the incredible Miranda who always gives a talk that seems to hit home. This place is filled with such love and kindness. Go check it out!
