For peace in the world, we need to seek peace within ourselves. Come hear about a delightful new book, Three Mystics Walk into a Tavern: A Once and Future Meeting of Rumi, Meister Eckhart, and Moses de León in Medieval Venice. They have a timeless and timely message for people eight centuries later, no matter an individual’s religious background or even if they have none. These three great mystics meet for an imaginary night-long conversation which can invite individuals today to find their own spirituality. Although Rumi, Moses de León, and Meister Eckhart came from different backgrounds and religious traditions (Islam, Judaism, and Christianity), their spiritual paths led them to similar understandings of union with the Divine. They connected with the “divine spark” deep within us and within the universe and this can lead to compassion, justice, and peace.
