This Congregation is Allowed to get Footloose 

Followers of Sufism seek divine love, peace and knowledge through a direct, personal experience with God — no small endeavor, considering that pesky human characteristics like greed, pride and ego often get in the way of enlightenment. One of the most famous practitioners of Sufism was a 13th-century Muslim named Rumi. A poet, jurist, theologian and teacher, he promoted tolerance, charity and awareness through love. Rumi also believed that dance and music offer a direct path to that love. Experience what Sufism and Rumi enthusiasts are all about at Body and Soul (649 East 59th Street, 816-363-8282) during the Shining Heart Community of Greater Kansas City's annual Festival of Rumi. This evening's display of love and unity begins at 7:30 p.m. in the form of Dances of Universal Peace, the first event of the four-day festival. For more information, call 816-523-0724 or see shiningheartcommunity .org/rumifest.htm.— Lorna Perry
