The poems of 13th century Persian mystic Muhammad Jalal al-Din al-Balkhi al-Rumi , who has long shaped Muslims around the world, plunge us into a bold, full-blooded view of human reality. Gorgeous, grim, transcendent, or tragic, Rumi embraces our nature and models a language of hope.
As the northern hemisphere spins toward the longest night of the year, come find solace and inspiration in a tapestry of chant, movement, and the words of Rumi.
Rumi scholar and interpreter Fatemeh Keshavarz and musician Jessika Kenney will create a deeply meditative evening that touches the soul and makes space for the liminal mysteries that unfold throughout this season. The threads of hope that fill Rumi’s lines will inspire us to reach beyond our knowing, toward a vision for humanity that is beautiful, courageous and pregnant with God.
