If Rumi is the great prophet of love, Kabir is the fierce and sublime prophet of truth. Rumi can be fierce, but leads with refined ecstatic tenderness, while Kabir can be tender, but leads with a breathtaking ferocity that aims to tame the ego and incinerate injustice and illusion. Rumi is the supreme aristocrat of poetry; Kabir speaks in the raw stark realism of a peasant who knows the horror of poverty.
There is no greater time than now that requires a simple, naked, unflinchingly fierce voice of Kabir. It is as though Rumi floods you with tender fire to prepare you to be burnt alive in Kabir’s loving flames, resurrecting you in your essential Divine nature. Kabir is the master of clarity, simplicity, directness, passion, and strength, and this laser-like purity and refusal to buy into any kind of illusion is exactly what spiritual seekers need amid our devastating global crisis.
Join Harvey, a world-renown scholar of Rumi’s work, as a backdrop to Kabir’s most important poems from his latest release Turn Me to Gold: 108 Poems of Kabir.
Experience three life-changing practices from the core of the Hindu and Sufi Tradition to be interspersed with deep sharing as you are guided in the glorious field of Kabir’s words and their innermost meaning for you.
Turn Me to Gold is a statement by Kabir that one drop of Divine love can turn you to gold. What is meant by gold is that you can be fully embodied to experience God, Spirit, or the Universe. The birth that is trying to take place on our planet is not one of just becoming conscious of the Divine, but to integrate and embody the Divine. Kabir is the supreme guide for enabling yourself to be turned to gold.
Delve into Kabir’s immensely inspiring vision of the transfiguration of the human into the Divine human. Engage in the inspiration derived from his poetry to fuel the wise sacred action for human transformation with Harvey, a master of enlivening and illuminating the hidden gems of mystic wisdom. Awaken to your life so you can live each day more aligned, sacred, peaceful, and open-hearted.
