Sufism is a celebration of the love affair
between the soul and God. The path of the Sufi is a journey of
love that draws us into longing and ecstasy, into the passion
and power that is awakened within the heart. The recent popularity
of the Sufi poet Jalaluddin Rumi speaks of our hunger for this
mystical love, this burning that belongs to the soul.
Through lectures, meditation, music, dreamwork,
poetry, and other mystical practices, we will share in this tradition
of lovers. We will open a doorway to the heart's knowledge of
truth, the lover's experience of the one Beloved.
