Andrew will evoke his inspiring vision of Kabir as a universal mystical poet and guide to the birth to a new humanity he will read from his acclaimed new book Turn me to Gold; 108 Poems of Kabir.
About Turn Me to Gold: 108 Poems of Kabir: After authoring more than 30 books, Andrew Harvey, Rumi scholar, mystic, and founder of Sacred Activism, is releasing what may be his consummate work, Turn Me to Gold: 108 Poems of Kabir, embellished with extraordinary photographs of India by Brett Hurd. Unlike Rumi, writes Harvey, Kabir is the tough, no-nonsense peasant ... the master of laser-like clarity, simplicity, directness, passion, and strength ... exactly what spiritual seekers need amid our devastating global crisis.
8.00pm in the Main Hall £10 / £8 concessions. Please book in advance to avoid disappointment - Andrew's talks are always booked to capacity.
This talk forms the first session of a two day retreat with Andrew Harvey - Turn me to Gold: Kabir's vision of Divine Love Wed 24 - Fri 26 April.
Andrew Harvey is an internationally renowned mystical scholar, Rumi translator, spiritual teacher, poet, novelist and architect of Sacred Activism
