Richard Rohr quotes the purpose of Rumi's community: "to open the heart, to explore the mystery of union, to fiercely search for and try to say truth, and to celebrate the glory and difficulty of being in a human incarnation"
Duncan Mackintosh offers a contemplative workshop on awakening love and presence, which is complemented by his performance skills as the best British reciter of Rumi. Laugh at yourself and life in the best of company! For Duncan's website click here
