MEVLANA JELALUDDIN RUMI

When Rumi was a child in the thirteenth century, sages predicted that he would one day set the hearts of the world on fire. Today, Rumi is the best-selling poets in the world. “This poetry is the living, molten speech of Divine Love itself — a trumpet waking the dead and calling us to relate again to the universe with wonder and ecstasy. Hidden within it is a very exacting and precise teaching, addressing with blazing clarity, humanity’s current spiritual awakening.” ~ Andrew Harvey, best selling author (The Way of Passion: A Celebration of Rumi), scholar, mystic

Mevlana Rumi What happens to the guests who keep visiting the verse of a Perfect One? Their voices and cells become refined and they gift back to the world all the light they have received. ~ Hafiz

TESTIMONIALS

Gabrielle Young has honed her being and her art to the point where she is not merely a marvelous interpreter of Rumi’s poems, but a transmitter of their sacred fire. Anyone who sees her performance will come away as I did, haunted by its pure and wild intensity, its unforced exaltation and its all-pervading atmosphere of reverence before the mystery of Divine Love. Gabrielle is an alchemist of movement, gesture, and word; she gifts a long draught of the Elixir of holy passion that turns the dross of being into the gold of truth. ~ Andrew Harvey, best selling author, poet, mystic scholar and translator of Rumi, sacred activist

Thank you Gabrielle for your work! – Coleman Barks, best selling author and key translator of Rumi’s poetry

A Mesmerizing Experience – Gabrielle Young’s rendering of the poetry of Jelaluddin Rumi elegantly evokes the magical passion for the Divine of the great Sufi Spiritual master. Her performance has so perfectly internalized the deep spiritual Messages that one feels the presence of a powerful transmission taking place. Her elegant use of word and gesture makes for a mesmerizing transformative experience. ~ Terry Riley, international composer, musician

When I first heard Rumi, I felt Being move inside. ~ Gayle Roberts The poetry was words I had heard before, a flowing, a glowing, something so intricate yet simple, a natural instinct and balance. I could feel this very high energy, like a chemical, in my heart. I felt I was skydiving through myself. ~ Natalia, educator 

I have read Rumi but have never experienced before such intense divine love – it was palpable. ~ Kate Mancini

Thank you. I am deeply moved. All the teachings are in this poetry. ~ Sri Karunamayi 

Poetry annunciates an eternal well-spring, straight from Source and back again! ~Gabrielle
In the mouth of the Beloved, speech is a jewel. ~ Rumi
