"TAMIR is certainly traveling this way of the heart. She is good company."

"Allow TAMIR to awaken the soul of Rumi within you. Stunning!"
- Dr. Wayne Dyer
An exciting collection of Rumi poetry with Persian music. My purpose is to produce spoken-art performances and CDs of the timeless mystic poets, embodying the highest standards of artistic excellence for your listening enjoyment and inner attunement. Art can and does bring us closer to our innate spiritual core. I sincerely hope that Rumi’s exquisite words bring you a step closer to your light self.
The Way of the Heart is a solo performance and CD of ecstatic poetry and colorful Sufi teaching stories of Rumi, narrated by TAMIR, with Persian music by Amir Vahab. The most profound spiritual truths are best expressed in ecstatic verse. Rumi, the 13th century Persian mystic, is now the best-selling poet in America. He is known as the axis of love, and he speaks directly to contemporary readers from the heart to the heart. This CD contains selections of his poetry combined with colorful teaching stories. Interwoven throughout are authentic Persian compositions by Amir Vahab, a singer and musician extraordinaire on several instruments: the ney, daf, tar, tanbur, setar, guitar and chogur.
"Only a person who has walked in the garden can truly identify the natural fragrance when it is captured in the jar of perfume. TAMIR's work will be most appreciated by those who have walked in the garden. By helping to bring the timeless message of human unity and divine oneness expressed through Rumi into a contemporary focus, she is helping to make us all more fragrant."
