Course Description:

Join us as we dive together into the ocean of ilm (divine luminous wisdom), reading, listening and savoring as we experience the poetry of Jalal ad-Din Mohammad Rumi. We will explore and recite translations by Coleman Barks, Andrew Harvey and Nevit Ergin, with an opportunity to read out loud to each other. Themes that will emerge are ecstatic love, spirit, soul, truth, and wisdom. Copies of the poems to be read will be distributed before the first class.


Tuition: $25.00

Additional Fees: $0.00
