In each session you will discover one new inspiring poem from Rumi.

By taking the poem in from this unique space, you allow its soothing layers to fully nourish and inspire you, connecting the meaning directly to your inner being, needs and authenticity. The essential part of each meditations guidance will be the ‘practice of presence’ approach with mindfulness elements, to support you to embody an effective meditation practice.
ABOUT RUMI & HIS POETRY
Rumi (Jalal ad-Din Muhammad Rumi) was the 13th-century Sufi master and Persian poet whose ecstatic poems have been inspiring people all over the world across different religions and belief systems throughout the centuries. First he was a wealthy nobleman, theologian and Islamic scholar until he met the wandering mystic known as Shams Al Tabriz, who inspired him to take the path of mysticism.
When taking this path, Rumi learned everything he could about love — unbounded, compassionate and universal and shared his wisdom in his verses.
The magic of Rumi’s poetry is that his words speak not to our minds, but directly to our hearts. Instead of just reading it, we feel like we are directly experiencing the message he is sharing. We enter and inhabit his verses, and they take us to another realm that nourishes our longing for spiritual connection and universal belonging.
MEDITATION & POETRY COMBINED
“… the space in the gaps between the words… thats where your essence is waiting…”
While listening or reading poetry, we are shifting our attention from just reading words (thinking about them) to the openness of the higher meaning of the message. The mind becomes calmer and we are creating a space within us for profound insights and meaning to arise. With poems, the world of symbols and imagery opens within us and connects us our deeper and more authentic wisdom.
Meditation then enhances this unique ‘space beyond’ and helps us to embrace it fully on the holistic level (mind, body, spirit, emotions).
Through the harmonious combination of poetry and the meditative space, we can connect with the real jewels of our authentic wisdom . Then the practice becomes a rich nourishment and ‘food for our soul’.
WHY MORNING PRACTICE?
In the morning our senses are open and our mind is still relatively silent, not cluttered with too many thoughts. It is like the nurturing soil waiting for the first seeds. Whatsoever we plant in our mind in the morning will be massively supported and developed by our unconscious and subconscious minds. Moreover, morning meditation will set you up positively so you will feel relaxed, focused and empowered for the whole day.
