Topics explored in this dialogue include: how the story of Rumi and his poetry can have a powerful influence on your life, the stunning story of sculptor Michael Richards and his 9/11 prophetic work of art, how the soul makes art that can tell us of things to come, how you can balance the paradox of ecstatic grief, how Rumi's relationship with his teacher, Shams of Tabriz, inspired his poetry.
Devoured it...digested it...and repeated the process 100 times. This is essential wisdom for the art of being alive.

Conversationally accessible developing ecstatic appreciation. Coleman Barks has a rich warm voice and conversational, informative
Love the poetry, love and fluidity of J. Rumi...Barks with the music is beautiful; great job.
This was more of a conversational exchange with Coleman Barks than the other New Dimensions program he did. However, it has some delightful, transpersonal elements.
Coleman Barks is an interesting spiritual personality and if you want a bit of a look at him, it's here. Instead of a song/music at the usual point of the program, Barks recites a Rumi poem to music.
