What wonderful gifts Pouria's teachings and this class are. I have long been a fan of Rumi's work but now I have a deeper understanding and a far greater appreciation for his divine verse. I so appreciate the heartfelt work that goes into Pouria's teachings - he truly loves and lives this work. The verse (shared in both English and Farsi), songs, meditations are all woven beautifully together to create an extraordinary experience. Thank you, Pouria!
From the first moment on I knew I was in the company of a great teacher. This class was like going to church but in the very best way. For days after each class, I would walk around in a state of total peace. Pouria's gift is to be able to turn a poem, or a writing, into something that pertains to our world today.
What an incredible opportunity, to be guided into the mystical heart of the luminous Rumi by a native Farsi speaker and a true exemplar of the love Rumi sings about in his ecstatic poetry and brilliant prose. Pouria carries the direct transmission of his master and shares it with extraordinary insight, humility, and sweetness. I highly recommend this course, either in person or online.
It is such a rare and wonderful gift to meet a true teacher. Rumi came into my life many years ago now and I have been turning to his poetry and teachings for illumination and encouragement ever since. What Pouria has done with this course is create an immersive experience in the teachings of Rumi. Imagine living in Rumi's poems and being met by a master teacher who can deepen your understanding of the mystery and symbolism at work, that is what this course is and I am so grateful for the experience....

Actually, week after week, you discover that Rumi's poems are actually an encrypted spiritual guidance...
