Coleman Barks & David Darling: Rumi poetry – A Turning Night of Stars

An Evening of Rumi with Music and Commentary – A Turning Night of Stars. The ecstatic poetry of 13th century Persian mystic Rumi, the most widely read poet in America today, performed by Coleman Barks, acclaimed poet, translator and interpreter with Grammy award winning cellist, David Darling.

Experience thirteenth-century mystical poet Rumi as you never have before—through the resonant, whiskey-and-syrup voice of Coleman Barks, a preeminent poet, scholar, and celebrated interpreter of Rumi’s work. He is bard in the truest sense of the word. Coleman’s extraordinary recitation is gracefully accompanied by the music of David Darling, a Grammy-winning artist who connects the earthy incense of Rumi’s words with the celestial strings of the cello. In this exquisite performance, Heaven and Earth unite in one of the most stunningly beautiful expressions of music and poetry that you will ever experience.

Coleman Barks was born and raised in Chattanooga, Tennessee, and was educated at the University of North Carolina and the University of California at Berkeley. He taught poetry and creative writing at the University of Georgia for thirty years. Coleman is the author of numerous Rumi translations and has been a student of Sufism since 1977. His work with Rumi was the subject of an hour-long segment in Bill Moyers’s Language of Life series on PBS, and he is a featured poet and translator in Bill Moyers’s poetry special, “Fooling with Words.” He is the father of two grown children and the grandfather of four. He lives in Athens, Georgia. http://www.colemanbarks.com

David Darling — “Maverick cellist” is the phrase most often assigned to Grammy-winning artist David Darling, but it hardly captures the richness, diversity, breadth and sense of humor of a man who literally redefines the way the cello is played and the way music is taught. His prolific collection of recordings and innovative performance style represent an eclectic variety of musical genres. His playful and unconventional teaching methods have helped open the world of music and improvisation to thousands of individuals. http://www.daviddarling.com

Michael Meade – Why the World Doesn’t End

Topic: Behind the serious crises occurring in both culture and nature there is a crisis of meaning and a loss of the sense of the world as a place of ongoing creation.
When “the End” seems near, how people imagine the world becomes more important; how people imagine humanity becomes of the utmost importance. In “dark times” the issue becomes living an authentic life.

Presenter: Michael Meade is one of the greatest depth psychological teachers of our time, and his story telling ability is magical and profound. Mr. Meade has studied myth, anthropology, history of religion, and cross-cultural rituals for over 35 years. His interpretations of ancient myths and symbols are highly relevant to current culture. He has an unusual ability to distill and synthesize these disciplines, tapping into ancestral sources of wisdom, while connecting them to the stories of people today. He is an author, scholar, mythologist and storyteller and founder of a non-profit organization Mosaic Multicultural Foundation.

Michael Meade – The Light Inside Dark Times

Description: Whether it be the fear of financial crisis or the uncertainties of climate change, the world has a more fearful and uncertain place. Yet, soul often awakens in the darkest hours as something deeper and wiser stirs within us.
The soul is the light hidden inside the dark that secretly holds things together within each of us and within the world. Often when all seems lost, the things that are most essentially ours can be found again.
