The 1,400 year-old spiritual path known as Sufism emphasizes the power of love to create transformation in a person’s consciousness. One of the greatest teachers of the Sufi path is Jalaluddin Rumi (1207¬–1273), a Persian mystic whose poetry and writings on love have become extremely popular in recent years. In this talk, Pir Netanel Miles-Yépez, will use stories and the poetry of Jalaluddin Rumi to explore the three stages of the Sufi path of love. Following the talk, those attending will be invited to use Rumi’s poetry to create Valentine’s cards, which will be shared with a local nursing home.
