About this course:

The fictions that Rumi invents or reuses to aid in understanding the principles of Sufism are intricately woven into the fabric of his spiritual teachings. In this course, we read his short teaching stories—parables with the power to open a mystical portal to a world where wisdom and wit reside. We discover the characters that inhabit Rumi’s fictions—the wise, the deceptive, the cunning, the distrustful, the gullible, the innocent, the pure and, of course, talkative animals. Rumi’s language soars to the heights of high verse, connecting us to eternal values and timeless human understanding that today’s fast, technologically driven life seems not to be able to give voice to. Suggested book: The Book of Rumi: 105 Stories and Fables that Illuminate, Delight, and Inform, translated by Maryam Mafi.
