WELLBEING WEEK – Ancient Wisdom For A Modern World: A Sufi Master Rises From The Grave – Guy Mullens
October 1 @ 10:30 am - 12:00 pm
Through his magical and straightforward poems, Hafiz, a Sufi mystic from the 14th century, tells us to stop pretending and get our heads out of our behinds. He tells us to rethink what it is we’re really doing! From a distant past, he encourages us to stand up from what we believe is real, even if only for a short while, and start experiencing what we feel. His words inspire us to get in touch with the wonders of what being truly alive can mean, beyond that which is easily and readily perceived.
During this talk, Guy will recite poems originally sung by Hafiz, weaving them into the fabric of modern-day life experience. As Chris wrote after last year’s presentation: “It was different and beautiful. We all agreed we could have sat for another hour”. This time, the talk will last for 90 minutes, so leave your worries and thoughts at the door, and get ready to be enchanted.
