A Celebration of Rumi
Explore the gifts of the great Sufi mystic’s poetry, teachings, and personal witness. These readings about the life and significance of Rumi, plus video clips of poetry readings and meditations, speak to the universal yearning for a closer connection to the Divine; a spiritual vision that is at once sensual, celebratory and pensive; identification with nature and animals; embracing mystery; and most of all, love – in the way we treat our neighbors and in how we relate to the Holy One.
Take a look at how society encourages us to buy more and more, and enjoy simple antidotes that reinforce generosity, gratitude, service to others, and a joy that is based in being, not having. These spiritual practices, blog posts, books, films, prayers, quotes, teaching stories, and more help you understand the dimension of the problem and find ways that you can address it both personally and in consort with friends, family, colleagues, and community members who share your concerns.
Consider experiencing the monastic life as part of your spiritual journey. Books and movies about the life of monks, nuns, and lay people living a contemplative life offer a treasure trove of devotional opportunities and resources to foster your fulfillment.
