The Mathnawi is a work of mystical poetry by Jalalu'din Rumi. His work is a guidebook through the twists and turns of life, leading to the clarity love.

Exploring Rumi’s Mathnawi

An ongoing collaborative learning experience to explore the mystical poetry of Rumi’s Mathnawí at Interfaith Community Sanctuary in Ballard. 1763 NW 62nd Street, Seattle, WA 98107. Class time is from 7pm – 8:30.

The beautiful poetry of Rumi has touched countless lives and has been a source of inspiration for anyone searching for a deeper awareness of what it means to be human. When the heart and mind find balance, the limitations of life are set aside, and the soul has the two wings needed for flight. The possibilities for the soul to fly freely are not limited to this physical atmosphere, the invisible realms are also open for exploration. The means of opening these doors of awareness are described in the six books of his Mathnawí, a guide-book for his journey of the spirit.
