Rumi Jalaluddin Rumi

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 and founder of the Mevlevi Order of "whirling dervishes," whose poetry and writings on love have become extremely popular in recent years. In these talks, Pir Netanel Miles-Yépez, will use the stories and the poetry of Jalaluddin Rumi to explore the three stages of the Sufi path of love.
