Walker Talks! on Rumi

December 17th is the night that dervishes around the world whirl, each in their own place, celebrating the passage of the great wise man Rumi into the unseen realms. They celebrate the gift of his life and thought, which still inspires now, even after seven hundred and fifty years.

Rumi’s rapturous turns of phrase, carried across into so many languages, are only one facet of his gem-like mind. His literary works are full of themes and settings which reveal a much more common world than we might otherwise presume, given such a mystifying reputation.

The enraptured one could actually be any one of us, but we might not know it, having become habituated to not seeing it. Rumi’s thoughts challenge us every bit as much as they succor us. You might even say that their challenge is simply a facet of the inspirational jewel which is Rumi’s live-giving gift.

Tonight, Walker Brents III delves into Rumi’s poetry, his legend and his wisdom.

Audiences are welcome, though most of Walker’s devotees take in his talks through our live stream, hosted on both YouTube and Facebook. Please donate to help us pay Walker for his talks!
