About Peter Rogen

At moments, a love of the spirit, of communication and of art, may break through the clouds like a bright sun.

In school starting a Dramatics Society, then winning a Rockefeller Grant to study in the American theater and performing Shakespeare with the Helen Hayes Equity Theater at the Brooklyn Academy of Music.

In the business world, founding a communication consultancy that now has a hundred consultants in ten countries; then retiring and turning to study the arts and cultures of Asian and Middle Eastern peoples.

Listening to Professor Coleman Barks reading his translation-versions of Rumi’s poetry, I heard new dimensions of communication, meaning, and beauty.

A wish was created to help other people discover Rumi’s poetry.
