About The Author: Kabir Helminski is a translator of the works of Rumi and others; a Shaikh of the Mevlevi Order, which traces back to Jalaluddin Rumi; co-director of The Threshold Society (Sufism.org); and a Director of the Baraka Institute (Barakainstitute.org). His books on spirituality, Living Presence and The Knowing Heart, have been published in at least eight languages. Among his recent publications are The Book of Language: Exploring the Spiritual Vocabulary of the Qur’an and Love’s Ripening: Rumi on the Heart’s Journey.
Camille Helminski is co-founder and co-director of the Threshold Society, a non-profit educational foundation rooted within the Mevlevi Tradition. She has worked within the Mevlevi Tradition for over twenty-five years and has translated into English several volumes of Sufi literature including the poetry of Jalaluddin Rumi, and a book of selections from the Qur'an for daily contemplation, The Light of Dawn.
"When the words of Rumi enter your heart, something softens, breaks, and is subtly reborn. That he wrote the words seven hundred years ago in a medieval Persian world that bears little resemblance to ours makes their uncanny resonance to us today just that much more remarkable. Here is a treasury of daily wisdom from this most beloved of all the Sufi masters—both his prose and his ecstatic poetry—that you can use to start every day for a year, or that you can dip into for inspiration any time you need to break through the granite of your heart."
I hope to see some of you there!
