Spiritual teacher Andrew Harvey is making his way to Mullumbimby Civic Hall for a three-night stint of inspiration, conversation and music.

Andrew studied all the mystical traditions for more than 30 years. He is a Rumi expert and translator and the author of 30 books. He is very well known in the US and the UK and is the subject of a BBC documentary called The Making of a Modern Mystic. His books are international bestsellers and have been endorsed by the likes of Deepak Chopra and Caroline Myss. His latest work is Sacred Activism and he travels the globe asking people to take radical action to halt the destruction of the planet. He asks the yogi to leave his mat and walk in the world.

‘A spirituality that is only private and self-absorbed, one devoid of an authentic political and social consciousness, does little to halt the suicidal juggernaut of history. On the other hand, an activism that is not purified by profound spiritual and psychological self-awareness and rooted in divine truth, wisdom, and compassion will only perpetuate the problem it is trying to solve, however righteous its intentions. When, however, the deepest and most grounded spiritual vision is married to a practical and pragmatic drive to transform all existing political, economic, and social institutions, a holy force – the power of wisdom and love in action – is born. This force I define as Sacred Activism.’

He is at the Mullum Civic Hall on Thursday, Friday and Saturday and on Friday is joined by Shai Shriki for a night of music and dance. Those interested may want to find out more by going to: www.transformationaltours.com.au or www.andrewharvey.net.
