    Professor Naini is a world traveler who has lived and taught in four different continents. For most of the past 24 years Dr. Naini has been a Professor, Program Director, Laboratory Director, Department Chair, and College Dean at several major universities throughout the world in the fields of Computer Science, Engineering, and Information Technology. For the past 30 years of his life, Dr. Naini has been a student of mysticism, poetry, literature, history, and numerous traditions and cultures. He has been featured in numerous U.S. and international websites, newspapers, and TV and radio shows, including a new PBS program, “Iran: A Celebration of Art and Culture.” He also is the main speaker and consultant for a new documentary film about Rumi. Dr. Naini is one of the foremost scholars of Rumi, the 13th century Sufi mystic, who is the best selling poet in the U.S. today. Dr. Naini’s latest book is “Mysteries of the Universe and Rumi’s Discoveries on the Majestic Path of Love.”

    Dr. Naini’s electrifying and mesmerizing rendition of Rumi’s poetry resonates within all who seek love, peace, and knowledge. Many people have commented that Dr. Naini “radiates warmth and love and Rumi’s spirit moves in him” and they have been “transformed by his talks” and “moved by his generosity of spirit.” Professor Naini’s extraordinary gifts are perhaps described best by a recent workshop participant who stated, “The depth of his knowledge of Rumi's poetry and his ability to recite a poem appropriate to the subject on the fly and then accurately translate it to English, is unparalleled.” Everyone agrees it is wonderful to hear someone so passionately and touchingly speak of universal love, serenity, and peace.

    In this talk Dr. Naini will discuss Rumi’s life, discoveries, and his teachings of how to appreciate the wonderful journey of life both in time and space on this earth, throughout the universe, and beyond. As Dr. Naini states, “Rumi’s poetry emphasizes love, the miraculous force that quickens the flow of the energy of our souls and allows us to soar to the highest state of ecstasy in our life journey. Rumi declares that love is the reason for the creation of the universe. Love makes mountains dance and the whole universe sing a heavenly song of Divine Unity.” Join Dr. Naini for an exciting workshop and share a few sips of Rumi’s incredible potion of love and wisdom and reach a new level of mystical understanding about the journey of life on this earth and beyond, and the power of true love.
