From various classes, events & talks I have given.
I love being immersed in the inspiration of Rumi. I’m so grateful for Raj who mindfully creates the sacred experience with deep reverence and beauty.

In my busy, complicated, and sometimes crazy life, I rarely take the time to slow down and feed my soul. Then I went to Rumi in the park, a wonderful, relaxing experience where I could lay down, and listen to beautiful, uplifting poetry while in a peaceful, outdoor setting. Laying on the grass, looking at the clouds overhead and watching the sun set in the West calmed my spirit and lifted my soul. Spiritual poetry coupled with beautiful music seeped into every fiber of my being-relaxing and rejuvenating it at the same time. I highly recommend taking time to attend this wonderful event. You deserve it!
A HUGE Thank You
I just got back from vacationing Belize with my Dad and had the chance to go snorkeling on the reef there. It’s a very popular reef for snorkeling and scuba diving. I am terrified of snorkeling. I get very claustrophobic in the water when I’ve tried snorkeling before. But I knew I had to try it again because it was a once in a lifetime opportunity!
After getting in the water and getting about 20 feet from the boat, I had got very freaked out. A second guide got in the water to take me separately but I was still very freaked out. I remembered the breathing technique you taught us at an OhSh!t meeting and started counting my breathing. It took me a bit, but I was able to do the full snorkeling (40 minutes) and saw a ton of awesome fish, a moray eel, a spotted eagle wing ray, and even a sea turtle!
Thank you so much for sharing that technique! It helped me do something I’d never thought I’d be able to do again!
