Empowerment Radio with Dr. Friedemann Schaub: Rumi to the Rescue – with Kamla K. Kapur

Do you sometimes feel overwhelmed by life’s challenges? Lost when it comes to finding your path? Confused about the meaning of it all? In our fast-paced society, with little time and even shorter attention-spans, we are more and more losing the ability to sit with suffering or patiently observe our own distress. The goal is more to avoid discomfort at all costs, whether through distractions, pharmaceuticals, social media or any readily available pleasure. Yet, the suffering we ignore doesn't disappear, and questions we avoid don't get answered.The ancient mystic, Rumi, taught us to have faith in the power of suffering – to embrace it, even if it is painful. Rumi understood pain as a symptom that our closed hearts are breaking open. My special guest on the next episode of Empowerment Radio is Kamla Kapur, author of “Rumi, Tales of the Spirit.” In her new book Kamla collected twelve fresh and powerful tales of the timeless storyteller Rumi, which guide us through the trials of life and teach us to embrace suffering, to pray even when it feels hopeless, and ultimately, to surrender to the cosmic will. Join me and Kamla this Thursday, November 21st at 9AM PT / 12PM ET, and learn from ancient wisdom, and how our trials and ‘hard times” can be the fuel for greater healing, wholeness and happiness.
