Rumi Returning: An Islamic Way of Peace


Thursday, March 6, 7pm
Flm screening in Perry Auditorium, 7th floor of the Cathedral
Free and open to the public with limited seating available

Please join us for a screening of a documentary about key events in the life of Rumi, the Sufi mystic and poet. Rumi Returning beautifully illustrates the life of the best selling poet in the United States.


 This film richly communicates Rumi’s messages of love, tolerance, and passion for God (whom he called “the Beloved”).


 Sufism and the Islamic world of the Middle Ages are brought to life through portrayals of Muslim architecture, art, clothing, and the dance of the Whirling Dervishes.


The film features commentary from Coleman Barks, Andrew Harvey, Uzeyir Ozyurt, and Akbar Ahmed. Presented by the Cathedral”s Center for Global Justice and Reconciliation (CGJR)
