What Does A 13th Century Persian Poet Have To Do With Mediation?

Well, you may or may not be aware of the connection but Rumi (being the Persian poet) has become very popular recently, especially with people in their twenties and the chances are that you will have seen one of his quotes somewhere on social media and probably found it thought provoking and shared it with your followers.

One of my favourite Rumi quotes is:

“Out beyond ideas of right and wrong there is a field and I will meet you there”.

This quote perfectly sums up the idea behind going to mediation! If someone has a dispute with another person, their first reaction might be to issue court proceedings and let a court decide how to resolve matters. However if that person went to mediation rather than going down the route of court proceedings, he or she would be trying to focus on how they could reach a solution to move matters forward with the help of a mediator, rather than focusing on what has happened previously.
