An Evening with Rumi 

When: Fri., Dec. 9, 7:30 p.m. 2011
Price: $10 suggested donation
Known as whirling dervishes, followers of the 13th-century Persian Muslim poet Jalal al-Din Rumi, used music and spinning dance moves to achieve spiritual enlightenment via trance (which sounds way more fun than church). Despite earning the nickname "the Drunken Sufi," Rumi was most likely drunk on mysticism. His centuries-old poetry gained new followers in the 1990s, thanks to the endorsement of spiritually hip celebrities such as Demi Moore and Madonna. His legacy is still celebrated annually and locally. Join the Shining Heart Community, KC's practicing Sufi group, for An Evening With Rumi, featuring poetry readings, music and dance. Events begin at 7:30 p.m. at the Rime Center (700 West Pennway, 816-471-1073). A donation of $10 is suggested. For more information, see shiningheartcommunity.org or call 816-523-0724.
