Unity Weekend Reboot — Third Sunday — Sacred Stories and Poetry

«The reed flute is fire, not wind. Be that empty.» — Rumi

Join us for another evening of Sacred Stories and Poetry from Sufi Masters such as Rumi and Hafiz. In this gathering, we will be blessed to hear the beautiful strains and painful longing of the Ney.

«The reed flute (called ney) is one of the main instruments in Sufism. It has been played for 4500-5000 years and is now popular in the Middle East. Although there are different types of ney, in Sufism the ney has 7 holes and symbolized the human being. It is used in rituals as it is believed that the sound of the ney helps to attain the consciousness of God. Rumi, the great poet of Persia, often speaks about the ney and his great work Masnavi opens with the words “listen to the ney”. He says the pains and sorrows the soul experiences through life are like holes made in a reed flute, and it is by making these holes that a player makes the flute out of a reed»

Be part of this heart filled gathering of souls sharing Sufi poems and stories, accompanied by a warm cup of chai, traditional music and
sacred dances with Universal Dances for Peace.

We welcome you in the upstairs gathering space, parking is available on any side street.
