From the highlands of Afghanistan, yoga classes in Amsterdam, dancing dervishes in Konya and spoken word artists in New York: Rumi is everywhere.
The Rumi Remedy goes to Afghanistan, where the poet was born in 1207 and remains immensely popular ever since. Compelling personal stories shed an unexpected light on this troubled region. Just like Rumi, young people are now fleeing their homes in Afghanistan to Turkey.
We follow their journey into Turkey, where Rumi died and lived most of his life. It is where his Turkish ancestors kept Rumi’s legacy alive, generation after generation.
The 12th century poet is a shared source of inspiration - across generations, religions and cultures. The Rumi Remedy connects readers around the world. For they may live in completely different worlds, but read the same old words.
