The Buddha's Voice - Meditation and Poetry

Monday, Sept 26, Oct 3 and 10

7:00 to 8:30 PM in person and on Zoom

CigCardMockingBird

Hearing poetry read aloud can deeply inspire meditation and daily practice.  Poems can “land” in the body-mind in a powerful way to calm, comfort, or shake us out of our conditioned perspectives.  Over three evenings, we’ll explore the relationship between the dharma and poetry. Please bring a favorite poem or poems and we’ll take (voluntary) turns reading them to each other, reflecting on how they might express the “Buddha’s voice” and teachings.  No one will be required to read; it’s fine to just come and listen.

The poem(s) you bring do not need to be written by Buddhist authors.  Dr. Seuss, for example, wrote some profound pieces in his children’s books.  Song lyrics and short prose paragraphs can also be used.  On the third week we will search out and focus on poems or short prose by indigenous authors.  All sessions will include meditation and (optional) movement as well as the readings.

Please take a moment to pre-register so that we can send some brief information in advance of each class.
