This group is about the wisdom teachings of Rumi and his poetry. Those who are new to Rumi's poetry are welcome to join as well as people who have studied Sufism or Rumi for many years.The group will meet in different places for poetry reading and meditation. Some of gatherings may include dancing or hiking. Rumi’s poetry and teachings encourage unity consciousness and enrichment of our hearts. While Rumi’s teachings and poetry are inclusive, they also help the individuals to a personal connection to the Divine. The group activities promote understanding of the concepts in Rumi’s wisdom teachings in the stories of his masterpiece, the book of Mathnawi, the book of enlightenment. Participants will learn the language, imagery, and storytelling within Rumi’s Poetry. They also will become familiar with the beauty of the poetry, and enjoy the poetic rhythms and melody in the original language of Farsi. The gathering promotes healthy living. The format of the gathering is interactive and encourages the group members to share their stories. The seekers will be sharing their reflections on poems and are encouraged to journal their reflections. Music and movement will be a part of some of the gatherings.

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.
