MORNINGS OF SPIRITUALITY FOR WOMEN – Rumi: Mystical Poet of the Heart
Led by Donna Steffen, SC
Rumi, a 13th century poet living in what in now Konya, Turkey, composed poetry that expresses his deep awareness of connection with the Beloved. Rumi’s poetry invites us into our heart, our soul, and the place of knowing the richness of God’s inner gifts. Through Rumi’s poetry in word and music, we will open our own connection with the Beloved.
