Kapur has been studying Rumi for twenty years - interestingly, she finds he's more popular today than ever. As a playwright, poet and professor of creative writing, she uses her own understanding of the human condition and artistic voice, along with Rumi's stories to 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. In her new book, Kamla brings us a retelling that conveys Rumi’s deep insight on the human condition and brings to light the vast and subtle meanings of his stories that are often lost in translation. Personal, poignant, and woven with fierce passion for life and the divine, Rumi: Tales of the Spirit will leave you with heart-wrenching gratitude for life’s trials and gifts.

In 12 fresh and powerful tales of wisdom from Rumi, we learn:
 
•      Why a 13th Century Mystic is still changing lives and more popular than ever before
•      How to Trust ourselves and the Universe
•      How to experience joy in good times and bad
•      How to find strength to persevere through life’s struggles
•      Ways to apply Rumi’s wisdom to all aspects of modern life, including relationships, business, health, and happiness
