When the great Sufi mystic and poet Jalal-ud-Din Rumi died at sunset in Konya, southern Turkey, on December 17, 1273, he had composed more than 3,500 odes, 2,000 quatrains, and a vast spiritual epic called the Mathnawai. Increasingly, Rumi is being recognized as a unique spiritual genius.
Understand your spiritual inheritance—and particularly the gifts of the way of passion—with entirely new eyes. Be initiated into an understanding of how the fusion of compassion and passion, equanimity and fire, tender love, and sacred activism, can give rise to a sacred life that can change the world. During this unprecedented journey, enter into the alchemy that shaped Rumi’s life and understand on a cellular level why his wisdom is so essential for navigating these times as we pass through perilous challenges and a collective dark night and seek to birth a new era of peace.
The return of Rumi’s consciousness to the planet is not a coincidence and Harvey is one of his leading interpreters, helping you to understand Rumi’s deeper messages and apply them to your life and times. Rumi fuses the soul force of a Jesus, the philosophical intellect of a Plato, and the literary gifts of a Shakespeare to create the ultimate expression of human-divine genius, thereby illuminating your own path forward.
Rumi is the world’s greatest mystical poet. He speaks to you from the depths of your own sacred identity. What he says has the electric eloquence of your innermost truth. No other poet or philosopher has Rumi’s almost frightening intimacy of address, conveying the terror, rapture, and wonder of awakening to Divine Love with such fearless and gorgeous courage, humility, and unflinching clarity.
