It’s not too late to join the Urban Retreat!
A lovely short talk by Maitreyabandhu, illuminating why poetry is itself an act of receptivity and requires that of us as readers and, in the context of an Urban Retreat, Buddhist practitioners. Taking as his source Kay Ryan’s poem ‘The Niagara River’ we get a simple but encouraging close reading of how poetry can help us slow down, take things in, and really - truly - notice what is going on in our lives…
Recorded in London for the 2015 Triratna International Urban Retreat.
