Love and light nurtures and sustains us. Rumi, the great 13th century Sufi poet, offers us an opportunity to deepen our capacity for inner life where we come to know ourselves, each other and our life journey. His ecstatic poems reveal and make tangible our connection with the self, humanity and the divine. Join us on September 17th at 6:00 pm at the home of Laurel Ziegler, Kutztown PA with a concert and reading honoring the poetry of Rumi, with guitarist and songwriter Michael London and poet Lisa DeVuono.

Love and light nurtures and sustains us. Rumi, the great 13th century Sufi poet, offers us an opportunity to deepen our capacity for welcoming our Inner Sun where we come to know ourselves, each other and our life journey. His ecstatic poems reveal and make tangible our connection with the self, humanity and the divine. We will celebrate summer’s arrival with a concert and reading honoring the poetry of Rumi, with guitarist and songwriter Michael London.

A collaborative show inspired by the visual art of New Bridge Artists. Poets, writers, musicians and actors will each respond with their own work to a visual art piece. All work will be displayed and/or performed at the opening reception, which will be much like a "happening," with all forms of the arts being celebrated.
