Rumi's poetry can be an enormously powerful tool of self-discovery and healing as an individual explores his or her world within. The wisdom of Rumi's teaching is hidden in the verses of his poetry. Teachings from the Mathnawi, Rumi's masterpiece, invite individuals to discover the hidden dimensions of their being and inner strength. His poetry and stories take one from the path of duality to the path of unity of body, mind and soul, leading readers step by step to meet the Divine within themselves - a journey toward enlightenment.
