Does it sound like a contradiction, that poems about pain can inspire? Actually it’s key creative principle.
In June, I started using Insight Timer App to record my daily meditations and to connect with others who are interested in the connections between creativity, mindfulness and meditation.
Now I’ve signed up as one of their teachers.
One of the reasons I’m delighted to partner with the wonderful people behind this app is that they are open to poetry as a form of meditation.
(They are Richard and Maddy and I’ll introduce you to them soon)
I’ve just adapted three poems for the app, to be used as a form of inspiration meditation. Essentially it’s about leaving a lot more silence between the lines and the stanzas.
I’d love your feedback — see what you think.
