Join us as we journey together to the world of Rumi. In our first session, we'll explore an overview of Rumi's life and his historical and religious context. In our second meeting, selected poems will be recited to the accompaniment of cellist Robin Keeler. During our final session, participants are invited to share their favorite Rumi poem with the class. Themes that will emerge are ecstatic love, spirit, soul, truth, and wisdom.
