Day-long Workshop This Being Human: Rumi's Poetry as Deep Listening Part lectio divina (“sacred reading”), part personal contemplative practice, a slow mining of Rumi’s exquisite 5-stanza poem “The Guesthouse” makes room for the fullness of what it means to be human. The words particularly invite in those who are grieving, confused, in transition, challenged or feeling lost. Deep Listening will take place through a variety of gentle sensory, creative and multimedia expressions.
