Over the ages mystics have been able to attain higher states of conscious different from the ordinary experiences of day-to-day life. Many mystics have allowed us to glimpse subtler realms of reality through their poetry. “ like a finger pointing to the moon”. .. a poetic description of their elevating experiences.

Let’s experience together what some of the great mystic poets like Hafiz, Rumi, Lalaji, and others were so ecstatic about. We’ll have time to meditate, sing/chant, dance and create our own "mystic rap.” 

Please bring a favourite mystical poem (if you have one) to share plus a notebook.
