Are you interested in meeting in the San Fernando Valley as we read a little of the uplifting poetry of Rumi or other mystics, with meditation (whatever kind we like) afterwards? Please join us!

Maybe we'll meet in a quiet natural setting. Maybe we'll do potluck! Fun and uplifting! (and there is no fee).

Here's a sample of Rumi (I think he's talking about you!):

"How excellent those trustworthy companions who follow their heart-silence.

Everyone looks in some direction, but these precious ones turn their faces to the directionless.

Every bird in the air holds to a course and a place in the world.

These doves soar in the void where the whole world rests.

Whatever we are given is enough, enough, and more than enough. Don't you see?

We no longer sit stitching this robe together. Now we stay up all night, pulling the tracery apart."

--from"A New Illuminated Rumi One Song" by Michael Green, poems by Coleman Barks

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
