The Sedona Creative Life Center will celebrate Rumi, the 13th century Sufi master, poet and mystic guide, who lived and taught in Konya, Turkey. His awakened presence and initiatory poetry continues to powerfully open humanity’s mystical heart and awareness. Rumi called his transition from the earth his wedding with eternity. People from all traditions came to honor him on his wedding day in the 13th Century.
Rumi embodied the presence on the earth of the Beloved, the awakened heart of humanity. Initiated by his master, Shams of Tabriz, he experienced the alchemical process of awakening into divine love.
Performing artists are Gabrielle Young, (poetry transmissions of Rumi, Lalla, Hafiz and others), Eric Zang (oud, ney, vocals) and Three Trees (percussion, halo, vocals).
