One Light: Jelaluddin Rumi

An informal evening dinner followed by the poetry and stories of Jelaluddin Rumi with storytellers Ashley Ramsden and Flora Pethybridge at The Nomads Tent, Edinburgh
Jelaluddin Rumi (1207-1273), the much-loved Sufi poet once said that his work would return to the world when it was most needed. In these troubled times Rumi’s words have re-emerged to inspire and unite people looking for a way forward.
The evening will begin with an informal dinner at 6.30pm, with vegetarian option, desert and chai. Followed by poetry and stories of Rumi.
This event is part of Ottoman Horizons: A festival of Ottoman Culture organised by The Nomad’s Tent.
