With Pioneering Contemporary Spiritual Teacher &
International Renowned Scholar
Andrew Harvey

An unprecedented opportunity to birth the Divine Human and
begin creating heaven on earth as you discover the radiant
gems of wisdom hidden within the beloved poetry and life of
today's most popular poet

Prepare to awaken your depths, expand your mind,
savor the nectar of the soul, and be inspired to walk
a path of sacred service

Isn’t it remarkable that – in an era fascinated with the new – a 13th century Sufi poet would become the most read and beloved poet in America?

And yet, it’s no accident, because Jalaluddin Rumi’s mystical insights speak precisely into the heart of our modern dilemmas in a way that even today’s greatest contemporary poets cannot match.

Through the “dark night” of the loss of his beloved soul friend and other heartbreaks, Rumi awoke into a sublime and timeless vision of the glory of Creation as a manifestation of the Absolute. He became a great lover of God whose words speak to our soul in tender, unforgettable terms, even as we face a world filled with real dangers and horrors.

Rumi’s astounding poetry awakens in us the sacred recognition that through practice and adoration of the Beloved, we can be initiated into what the universe truly is – an unendingly magnificent epiphany.

Knowing and feeling this magnificence can impel us to start putting love and justice into action to protect our world on every level, as well as empower us with the sacred energy that we need to undo our habits of exploitation and domination.

Rumi’s poetry carries an initiatory force that allows us to feel the grandeur of God, giving us essential nutrients for our spiritual journey. He is far from a sweetness-and-bliss mystic, though, for he looks straight into the heart of darkness to transform it. Indeed, his grief is a birthing ground for the Divine Human in him.

In this ten-module course with one of the world's most renowned mystic-scholars and a great lover of Rumi, Andrew Harvey, you will be taken on a spiritual journey to the core of your being, with Rumi's life and words as the gateway into a breathtaking new vision of your life, love, and God.

You’ll learn about the secret saga of Rumi’s transfiguration, his initiatory relationship with Shams, the betrayals, and the tender mystical relationship he experienced with Jesus.

You’ll learn the REAL story of what it took for one man to awaken and become a prophet for the ages – and how you can apply this in your life through advanced mystical practices known to the adepts of the ages.

Over the journey, Andrew will take you in your depths through a kind of alchemical communion with Rumi and a dozen other key mystics who offer insights on the stages of initiation that we must pass through to birth the Divine Human in us.

You’ll understand our spiritual inheritance – and particularly the gifts of the Way of Passion – with entirely new eyes. You’ll be initiated into an understanding of how the fusion of compassion and passion, equanimity and fire, tender love and sacred activism, can give rise to a sacred life that can change the world.

During this unprecedented journey, you will enter into the alchemy that shaped Rumi’s life and understand on a cellular level why his wisdom is so essential for navigating our times as we pass through perilous challenges and a collective dark night and seek to birth a new era of peace.

The return of Rumi’s consciousness to the planet is not a coincidence and Andrew Harvey has become one of his leading interpreters, helping us understand Rumi’s deeper messages and apply them to our life and times.

Andrew believes that Rumi fuses the soul force of a Jesus, the philosophical intellect of a Plato and the literary gifts of a Shakespeare to create the ultimate expression of human-divine genius, thereby illuminating our own path forward.

In the course, you’ll also learn from profound Sufi, Christian, Jewish, and Christian mystics whose insights parallel Rumi’s. You’ll weep. You’ll soar. You’ll get very sober about engaging the challenges of our day. And you’ll celebrate the divine feast that we are given to savor in every moment.

If you have not heard Andrew Harvey before, he is a tsunami of love-wisdom, pouring forth his adoration for the Divine and his passion for the sacred marriage of mysticism and action. He beckons you into a state of rapture and deep appreciation for the splendor of the Universe while unflinchingly speaking truth about our delusions.

Andrew is well known as the author of over 40 books and spiritual classics, including Rumi: The Way of Passion,The Essential Mystics, and The Son of Man, but if you haven’t heard him speak, prepare to be amazed.

He’s become the most popular Shift Network faculty this year for a reason: his words are the exact medicine our souls need right now as we traverse a time of great trial on the planet.

Andrew believes the world is at a precipice and that we need a spiritual path that goes beyond love and light to give us a roadmap for the transfiguration of our world.

He recognizes that the deeper teachings of Rumi hold an essential key for our individual healing and collective awakening: they are the gateway into the sacred marriage of divine feminine and masculine, the portal for understanding the dark night, and the map to the alchemical journey in which we turn our lead into gold.

It’s time for the world to embrace a full spectrum view of the spiritual path, one that encompasses embodiment as well as transcendence, the awakened heart and fierce love in action. This full-spectrum path can help us address the urgent crises that we now face.

This full-spectrum path IS the Way of Passion.

This is why we are so excited to offer this groundbreaking 10-module online course with Andrew Harvey entitled: Rumi and The Way of Passion.

Andrew Harvey on Sacred Passion

At the Caroline Myss Education Institute, May 2008

In this incendiary video, Andrew uses the poetry of Rumi to light a fire on the ground of your heart and spark you to action.

In the Fire of Grace Video

In this video experience, Banafsheh Sayyad, the great legendary sacred dancer interprets five stages of the soul's archetypal journey to union with the Beloved, in movement that marries serene grounded peace with fierce gorgeous passion, jus as Rumi's mystical vision does. She is accompanied by Andrew Harvey as the voice of Rumi summoning her deeper into the flames of death and rebirth.

Banafsheh Sayyad, an Iranian-born dance artist and transformational teacher, communicates the universal message of Sufi mysticism in a passionate yet meditative way. She is one of the few bearers of authentic Persian dance in the world, an innovator of Sufi dance previously only performed by men and a pioneer in contemporary Persian dance. Internationally known for her innovative movement vocabulary and high artistic and educational standards, she draws from her extensive background in Sufism, Persian dance and ritual, Tai Chi and Flamenco to present a new form, rooted in tradition yet universal, "fusing ancient forms with a postmodern punch" (Los Angeles Times). Banafsheh comes from a long lineage of pioneering performing artists. Her father, the legendary Iranian filmmaker, theater director and actor, Parviz Sayyad, hailed as the Charlie Chaplin of Iran, is the most famous Iranian of his time. Banafsheh is a recipient of the prestigious James Irvine Foundation grant in Dance. She holds an MFA in Dance from UCLA where she taught Persian dance.

What Graduates of Rumi and the Way of Passion
are Saying...

“Listening to Rumi's words through Andrew Harvey, in the way that Andrew embodied them, elucidated and illuminated them, I felt almost physically the powerful call to live larger, that I truly am larger in heart and spirit than I ordinarily live, and that to live that challenge is fully possible and essential to me or anyone, especially in the global crisis we face.”
-Stephen Gambill, Corpus Christi, TX

“I appreciate Andrews wisdom and poetry. He helped me rise above my ego perception of small into the resonate beauty of the cosmic Christ and to claim my part of this amazing transformation!”
-Amara East, Nederland, CO

“Listening to Andrew and Rumi as One Voice over the phone during this course, after so many years of reading, speaking, and singing their poetry, was like drinking a Love Potion of Pure Flame. It ignited a deeper, more potent level of mystical fire within me, jolted me out of a recent spell of inertia, and sent me soaring back into my creative life -- burning away everything that would separate me from Love and Creation. I began decluttering my house as an act of reverence, making way for the ecstatic wave of Divine Passion that began flowing through me like a river -- merging Rumi's heart, Andrew's and mine -- a birth canal from which we were all being newly born, to grace the world in service to this Divine Love. Thank you.”
-Kazzrie Jaxen, Upstate NY

-Dorothy Argent, British Columbia, Canada

-Roya Pugh, Tasmania, Australia

More Praise for Andrew Harvey...

"Every age has its teachers, who keep the eternal truths alive for all of us.  And when a generation is very, very lucky, it encounters a teacher so illumined that the words he delivers must be illumined as well.  In the case of Andrew Harvey, the light he sheds is like a meteor burst across the inner sky.”
-Marianne Williamson, author of Everyday Grace

“Andrew is a genius and an inspired visionary who has the ability to interpret the meaning and significance of the chaos and patterns of change that are redirecting the compass of our contemporary culture. Andrew is a spiritual, intellectual, and cultural mystic whose passion is to awaken people to a new and essential empowerment in this world: sacred activism. He has defined and grounded the route, the means, and the way individuals can and should respond to the chaos and rapid changes that now characterize our contemporary spiritual and cultural life. Andrew's research reflects his superb academic background as a professor at Oxford and his passion clearly reveals that his soul is on fire with a grace that comes from the Divine."
-Caroline Myss, Author of Anatomy of the Spirit and Sacred Contracts

"Amid the myriad challenges we face on earth - the population explosion, environmental degradation, nuclear proliferation, religious fundamentalism, terrorism, war, apocalypse-think, and more - it is easy to be overwhelmed by a sense of futility and hopelessness.  Now comes a singularly courageous, charismatic individual, Andrew Harvey, with an answer to all of these challenges: personal transformation and empowerment through an encounter with the divine feminine.  This process is not esoteric, but is entirely natural and as near as our own shadow.  Harvey's sacred activism is a corrective to the doomsayers and do-nothings who are part of our problems.  He is a modern version of a fiery, Old-Testament prophet, whose words were ignored at great peril.  We must attend to Andrew Harvey's message.  Not only will it help us humans regain our sanity, it just might save our skins."
-Larry Dossey, M.D., Author of The Extraordinary Healing Power of Ordinary Things

“Using humor, passion, and analysis, Andrew Harvey challenges us to wake up and get up off of our couches to become the spiritual activists we all can be.  A powerful, provocative, prophetic appeal to sanity and activism for our apocalyptic times, this film is recommended for anyone who cares about the survival of their grandchildren or planet or both.  Is anyone listening?”
-Reverend Matthew Fox, author, Creation Spirituality and founder of Wisdom University

“Andrew Harvey is one of the world’s irreplaceable resources.”
-Lance Morrow, writer, Time magazine

“Harvey is probably the greatest living scholar and practitioner of mysticism.  There are others more deeply steeped in individual traditions, but few, if any, have so extensively explored such a variety of mystic paths, not just an academic observer but also as a participant.”
-Worcester Magazine

“Andrew Harvey is an enlightened spirit–a messenger from the Divine.”
-Gloria Vanderbilt

"Our world is awash with activism, is drowning in activism, but it is the wrong kind. Andrew Harvey’s sacred activism is the only form that is likely to save us from the narrow, destructive preoccupations that seem to mesmerize us humans. Only an attention to the heart – for "sacred" and "heart" reflect a common meaning – can generate the hope, courage, and vision required for our troubled times. It is important to realize that Andrew Harvey’s message is not a matter of philosophy, but of survival."
– Barbara Dossey, PhD, RN, AHN-BC, FAAN

“Amid the gloom-and-doom predictions and total denial so prevalent today, Andrew Harvey’s is a singular voice speaking truth about our current situation. In impassioned yet pragmatic terms, he lays out the grave problems humanity faces, from WMDs and environmental desecration to epidemic levels of attention disorder, outlining the grim fate that awaits us if we fail to mend our ways. But unlike the chorus of modern-day Cassandras, Andrew doesn’t leave us there, mired in despair. Setting out a course of radical and reasoned action, he empowers us to become spiritual activists and reclaim our planet from the suicidal trajectory we’re traveling. We could have no more compelling guide to today’s challenges and their solutions. It’s breathtaking to hear so unsettling a subject articulated with such intelligence and grace.”
-Joan Duncan Oliver, journalist and author, Happiness: How to Get It and Keep It

"At this critical juncture in history, Andrew Harvey’s teachings on Sacred Activism are sounding a clarion call to all who care deeply about the future of humanity and of the planet. We cannot open to creative solutions to the enormous challenges that confront us without looking truthfully and fearlessly at the horrific things that are taking place in our world and at the same time holding to a powerful vision of what is possible through a radical transformation of our consciousness. The Chinese character for the word crisis contains the characters for danger and opportunity, and in this powerful film, Andrew Harvey clearly outlines both these elements of our current world crisis as he makes the case that the darkness of our time is also the birth canal for the emergence of a divine humanity. He passionately calls us to dedicate ourselves to being midwives of this birth, and describes in very practical terms the five dimensions of service that comprise a commitment to live as Sacred Activists. I cannot imagine a more important teaching for our time."
– Rev. Diane Berke, Spiritual Director, One Spirit Learning Alliance
