Mindfulness and Poetry - July 2018.png

Questions that come up:

WILL I BE WRITING POETRY?  No, we use poems as meditations, to open us up to experiencing the present moment deeply
I DIDN'T LIKE POETRY IN SCHOOL  It's a very different approach.  You can get a sneak preview below to give you an idea.
IS IT JUST POETRY? It's a day of mindfulness, infused with poetry. It contains guided meditations, silent sits, and we always include a decadently long deep relaxation as part of the nourishing day - you can listen to a sample deep relaxation to give you a sense of the practice.

You can get an idea of how poetry can be used to take us off autopilot with these poems.
