Good Humor – Sufi Wisdom Stories

May 17 @ 12:00 pm - 2:00 pm

Meet the Middle East’s most famous wise fool, Mulla Nasruddin. Nasruddin stories are often published as children’s books, but like more familiar western fables, they contain wisdom for every age group. Humor is a teaching device in many spiritual traditions. These stories originate in the 13th century and have travelled through the centuries and across continents making laughter a part of the awakened life for those willing to laugh and learn with Nasruddin.

Storyteller/spiritual director Sheila Otto will tell several 2-3 minute Nasruddin stories. With each story there will time for laughter, reflection, discussion and the option to write and tell your own Nasruddin style story in contemporary terms.

Instructor: Sheila Otto

Noon – 2:00 pm, Fridays, May 17 – 24 (2 weeks)

Cost: $29 for members; $41 for non-members

Room Location: Canticle Center 149
