Award-winning composer, master Oud player, educator, award-winning author and peace activist Yuval Ron joins Gong master Kenneth Goff and poetry artist and Rumi translator Ari Honarvar through the ecstatic poetry of the 13th century Sufi master and poet Jalaluddin Rumi.

Molana Rumi is the best selling poet across the globe, but Americans have only been given a glimpse of the brimming passion and vitality of his poems. Prepare to go on an inner adventure of beauty and radiance of Rumi’s wisdom where assumptions and concepts lose their hold. The enchanting sounds and the gripping poems beckon you to join this caravan through both the dark and mysterious valleys and the wondrous and dazzling peaks of the soul.

This indoor event is open seating on carpet. Chairs are provided, but the audience is also invited to sit or lie down on the floor during the gong immersion event. Please bring your own yoga matt, blankets, pillows, and cushions.

The Yuval Ron Ensemble, has been actively involved in creating musical bridges between people of the Jewish, Muslim and Christian faiths and has been featured on CNN, National Geographic, and in the international press and media.

Ken Goff is a gong master with 45 years of experience of musicianship with percussive instruments, gongs and sound healing. His immersive gong music and his understanding of vibration and nuances of healing sound, provides an ideal atmosphere for Rumi’s mystical poetry.

Ari Honarvar born into a family of poets and poetry lovers, is an artist who blends calligraphy and paint to present Persian poetry. In performance, she brings forth the spirit of Rumi’s poems in the form of “deklameh,” the Persian art of becoming the poem.
