Pouria Montazeri

Pouria Montazeri grew up with Rumi’s poetry and teachings. He draws from his 28 years of experience with Sufism, Advaita Vedanta, and other mystical and contemplative practices and his experiences as a teacher, spiritual director/coach, speaker, poet, mindfulness instructor, sangha guide, mentor, and filmmaker to support himself and others to live more creative, peaceful, and meaningful lives. He wrote, directed, and shot Shams & Rumi: The Fragrance of Axis Mundi, which won many international film awards.  

Pouria Montazeri travels and offers his heart as a gift through conferences, workshops, retreats, and 8-week long Rumi courses. All of the proceeds are either obtained by the hosting body or donated to a charity in need.
