Camille Adams Helminski explores stories of women of faith including Mary, Miriam, and Fatimah, and others of our Grandmothers of Spirit, with reflections from her recent poetic offering, Ninety-Nine Names of the Beloved: Intimations of the Beauty and Power of the Divine.
Camille Hamilton Adams Helminski is a teacher in the Mevlevi Sufi order, and has been a student of the Qur’an and the traditions of the Prophets for more than 40 years. Camille and her husband, Kabir, teach internationally through the Threshold Society which they founded in 1988, encouraging all to awaken to the Divine Presence in every moment of our lives. She has produced some of the first modern English translations of Jalaluddin Rumi, rendered a significant portion of the Qur’an into English in The Light of Dawn, Daily Readings from the Holy Qur’an, and compiled the wisdom of female Muslim saints in the now classic guide, Women of Sufism. Her most recent poetic offering, Ninety-Nine Names of the Beloved, is a beautiful collection of poems bringing the ninety-nine Divine qualities into awareness in everyday moments and giving readers an exquisitely personal window into Divine Presence.
Copies of her books will be available on the night for signing (cash only).
