With the Beloved's water of life, no illness remains
In the Beloved's rose garden of union, no thorn remains.
They say there is a window from one heart to another
How can there be a window where no wall remains?
~ Rumi

 What do Hafiz, Rumi, Rabia, Yunus Emre, Ibn Arabi have all in common?

 

They are all Sufi Poets.

 

 A Sufi poet is the one longing to reach the Beloved which is God...

He or she is burning with the desire to become one with God...

Classical Sufi scholars have defined Sufism as "a science whose objective is the reparation of the heart and turning it away from all else but God".


 Please join us for an evening with these poets,

learn about Sufism,

have a taste of their longing,

learn the symbols in their poetry,

understand their desire.

   

Saturday, February 9th 4:30 p.m. - 6:30 p.m.

Exchange is $15.00 via Paypal with advance RSVP, or $20.00 at the door.

Please email Vanessa through this page for our street address in Great Neck.
