Fri. Oct 21, 2016 8:30pm – 10:30pm PDT, Price $35

An exceptional evening of devotional artistic expression. To open the evening, Deepak Chopra will read poems from Rumi, Hafiz, and Tagore. Some of these poems have been translated by Deepak and have never been presented in public before! Following this unique presentation, we feature a concert with Fanna-Fi-Allah, a devotional music ensemble presenting the ancient Sufi tradition of Qawwali with deep devotion, passion & ecstatic rhythm.

Qawwali music celebrates the great Sufi mystics of old, and relishes in the love of the Divine through poetry. Sung with a powerful and soaring melodious chorus and accompanied by entrancing energetic rhythms of tabla and group clapping, the Beloved is celebrated with ecstatic devotion.

**This evening is part of the Science and Nonduality Conference**
