"There's hidden sweetness in the stomach's emptiness.

We are lutes, no more, no less. If the soundbox

 is stuffed full of anything, no music.

 If the brain and belly are burning clean

 with fasting, every moment a new song comes out of the fire.

 The fog clears, and new energy makes you

 run up the steps in front of you." - Rumi

MPV Retreat 2011 Recap

Thank you to everyone who attended our annual retreat in Berkeley, CA. A very special thanks to our guest speakers and all the volunteers who generously donated their time to ensure the event's success! This year's retreat was our biggest yet...from the arts, to Islamic history, spiritual reflection, women's issues, and LGBTQ  rights, participants left recharged with new insights and life-long friendships. View the pictures, event highlights and video clips on Facebook.
