The Five Valleys on the Journey to Unity and Happiness | Sunday, 24. September 2017

Dear All,
We just heard that due to an emergency situation, Amir is not able to lead the session tonight. Please kindly keep him and his family in your prayers.

We sincerely apologize for the inconvenient and we are hoping that we can re-start this program as of Oct 15.
We will keep you posted. Please stay tuned.

The poets and sages have left maps of the inner world, sometimes in hidden code, sometimes in direct wisdom. These maps lead to what all human beings yearn for: happiness, connection, peace, truth. In this series we will explore how we can traverse the “valleys” in personal and spiritual growth, with the help of the pillar of mystical poetry, Mowlana Jelaluddin Rumi, and other great poets and teachers. Music, contemplation, meditation, and conversation will carry us along the way.

In this 5-session (once every three weeks) transformational program, you will walk your path with greater courage and compassion, and drop into your ecstatic depths to savor the nectar of your soul.
In the blissful lines of Rumi and other great poets and teachers, you will discover passionate, intimate and sublime descriptions of spiritual awakening and how living a beautiful human life emerges from that awakening.

Each of the five sessions will build harmoniously upon each other, so that you’ll travel a sacred, holistic path towards happiness and transformation. While it isn’t essential that you attend each session, the benefits of the teachings, conversation and meditations will be best experienced by attending the whole series.
