My name is Jack. I am a 64 y/o (going on 44 y/o) single (divorced, actually) male, well educated, corporate business retired, previous large preschool director, prior career adviser to MBA students, Harley rider of 125,000+ miles, music lover and proud father of a 27 year old daughter living and working in downtown Chicago. What else ya wanna know? ;-)
Happily retired from 24 year corporate business career in cold Chicago and a couple "give back"gigs here in Tucson, I have found this Rumi group remarkably different, enlightening and enjoyable.
There is no discussion, cross talk or dialogue. The poem is read aloud and Annick facilitates each person to reflect what that poem says to that person. Annick sometimes will probe a bit for understanding or context to one's thoughts about the poem, but we do not comment on other's comments nor are questions asked of one another. This format is truly non-threatening and only poems by Rumi are read aloud and reflected upon by those who wish to offer their thoughts, observations, comments or reflective meanings as to what the poem says to that individual person.
