About Pouria Montazeri

https://www.footprintsofrumi.com/

Pouria Montazeri grew up with Rumi’s poetry and teachings. He draws from his 28 years of experience with Sufism, Advaita Vedanta, and other mystical and contemplative practices and his experiences as a teacher, spiritual director/coach, speaker, poet, mindfulness instructor, sangha guide, mentor, and filmmaker to support himself and others to live more creative, peaceful, and meaningful lives. He wrote, directed, and shot Shams & Rumi: The Fragrance of Axis Mundi, which won many international film awards.

Pouria is passionate about sharing his love of Rumi and mystical poetry through the privileges he has as a Persian-speaking person who grew up in the same culture and spirituality as Rumi did. He strives to develop vocabulary by which we can lead each other into mystical experiences beyond dualism. His favorite language and form of communication is poetry, which he finds closest to the heart-one where words arise from silence. Poetry slows us down and allows us to see deeply into the mysteries of life. 

Pouria loves nature and can always be found on one of his sunrise contemplative hikes with scraps of poetry in his pocket in his home state of Colorado.

ABOUT US

AWAKENING THE SPIRIT

OF ONENESS IN ALL.

 

At Althea we do things differently. Rooted in a philosophy of Oneness - God is All - we believe that each person must chart and weather their own unique spiritual journey. In our experience of Spirit as oneness and connection we uncover our gifts, find peace, have fun, and help make the world a better place for all.

 

We are not a conventional church nor even a typical center. We are a dynamic, diverse, evolving community, committed to supporting, inspiring and challenging all who seek to embrace an expansive way of being and a joyful experience of life. 

 

We offer a Sunday 10:30 am service and many classes, workshops and special events throughout the week - from yoga to meditation, spiritual psychology to chanting and movie nights.
