Greetings. This is Rasoul Shams. I am interested in the fields of spirituality, poetry, culture, science, philosophy, history and travel. I have spent my life in four countries: Iran, India, Japan and the USA. I founded Rumi Poetry Club in Salt Lake City in 2007. I have translated Rumi: The Art of Loving (2012) and The Words of Rumi: Celebrating a Year of Inspiration (2017). My articles on Rumi have appeared in various journals in the US, Europe and Asia. These articles are also included in the book Rumi Essays: On the Life, Poetry, and Vision of the Greatest Persian Sufi Poet (2016). I hope to share more works on perennial wisdom from timeless (and timely) spiritual masters. Very delighted to be part of Goodreads. Thank you.
