Turned to Gold: The Divine Poetry of Kabir

Thursday, September 19, 7:00 p.m.

Andrew HarveyKabir is India’s most famous and beloved poet, eclipsing even Rumi. His fierce, clear, wild, ecstatic songs provide exquisite spiritual illumination coupled with a grounding relevance to our troubled times. Turn Me to Gold, the title of Andrew Harvey’s newest book, is taken from a line by Kabir that just one drop of divine love can turn you to gold. To be “gold” is to be fully embodied—experiencing God not only in the mind, but also in the body, in the cells. Our planet is trying to birth a new consciousness of the Divine, insists Harvey, not only from those who are becoming conscious of it, but those who have integrated and embodied it as well. Kabir, then, is the supreme guide for allowing ourselves to be “turned to gold.”                

There will be a book signing after the lecture.
