Sacred and Profound Explorations

Dr. Sky Schultz is a Doctor of Psycology, student of Rumi, and explorer of the roots of faith.

In his delightful sampler of Walt Whitman, Americas most beloved poet, who said, “I am vast, I contain a multitude.” Also included is the remarkably beautiful and profound poems and stories of Jalaluddin Rumi—a twelfth century Persian poet who is called the greatest spiritual poet of any era and the Shakespeare of the East. Rumi is also very funny. The Rumi translations I use are mostly those of Coleman Barks. These poets dazzle and can change and heal your life.

Dr. Schultz has presented thousands of programs nationally for four decades as a serious speaker and as a humorous entertainer. He leads audiences of all ages on creative adventures in science, the world of nature, spirituality, and the poetic and visual arts.

Programs especially for adults and seniors:

· The power of Gratitude to change your life.
· My Search for Wisdom… and the best I have found.
· Profound and funny teaching stories… parables from around the world
· Telling the important stories in your life…a workshop.
· The Art of Seeing… or how to be rich with out money.

Custom presentations and workshops available.
