Rumi, Creativity and Your Life as An Artist

Levels: All Levels

Offered: Feb. 24th & 25th, 2018, 10am - 4pm

Instructor: Fereshteh Fatemi

This two-day workshop offers a unique experience designed to awaken your creative process, connect you to your heart, and uplift your spirit. The work is based on the beautiful and inspiring poetry of Jalāl ad-Dīn Rumi, the 13th century Persian poet, scholar, and mystic. We will read and explore some of Rumi’s poems, which offer both illuminations in their own right, and passages that we can use as directives for a reconsideration of our lives and ongoing work. Each poem will be a prelude to creating a collage or mandala. The art we imagine under Rumi’s influence is both meditative and healing, and revelatory. With each of these exercises, we will deepen our self-understanding and offer ourselves new paths to self-discovery. This process of reading, art, and conversation can be a life-changing experience that will also be two days of fun.

Fereshteh Fatemi is a Soul-Centered coach with a BA in Fine Arts and an MA in Spiritual Psychology. She studied Rumi for 11 years in Farsi, her native language.
