Poetry Appreciation: Study Rumi from the comfort of your couch

Monday, February 13, 2023

Let the poetry of Rumi warm your soul this winter. Rumi was a 13th Century mystical Persian poet whose insights into life, loss, freedom, longing, spirit, and imagination continue to resonate even today. 

As a Sufi, Rumi was the founder of the ‘whirling dervishes’.  Learn about Rumi’s mentor, the mysterious Shams of Tabriz. 

The Essential Rumi translated by Coleman Barks (New Expanded Edition) will be the required text and touchstone for our discussion sessions.  Rumi is the most widely read poet in America today. A couple of DVDs on Rumi will be shared as well.

Robert Stahl has previously taught several poetry classes at Seattle-area colleges: Rumi, Hafiz, Emily Dickinson, Rilke, Mary Oliver, and Haiku. 

For students 16+ and adults of all ages.
3/2 - 3/23 | 6:00 – 8:00 pm | Thursday (4)| Bob Stahl | Fee: $99 | Location: Online

Offered by Shoreline Community College Continuing Education.
