Rumi's Gift – Oracle Card set, book of translations, meditations, and stories
For hundreds of years, the alchemy of Rumi’s words have transformed world views and changed lives. Now, let Rumi take you on an inner adventure of beauty and radiance where assumptions lose their hold. Not only do the images of this deck tell a story, but look closer, and the sacred Farsi script of the poem reveals itself to you.
This oracle set contains 66 cards: Each image card is a Rumi poem shaped into a Farsi calligram, paired with a poem card containing its English translation. Also included is a commentary booklet with stories and insights. Wherever you are in your present journey, each poem and image will awaken your heart and illuminate your mind. Meditate on the images, reflect on verses and stories, and interact with Poems in Action. This set beckons you to join Rumi’s caravan through both the dark and mysterious valleys and the wondrous and dazzling peaks of the soul.
