I’m reading at the Urthona, the Buddhist Arts magazine launch!
It’s a great magazine with art, poetry, reviews, and comment pieces – really worth a read. This issue includes a feature by Maitreyabandhu on poetry mentoring with his mentor the amazing Mimi Khalvati.
Introduced by Urthona poetry editor, Dharmavadana, there will be readings from four poets featured in issue 33 – Caroline Maldonado, Cath Drake, Ian Marriott and Subhadassi. Also Satyadaka will read his brilliant new Rilke translations, editor Ratnagarbha will read translations from Dante, plus there will be music from the Bright Moments Duo: Jonathan Cohen (Piano) and Francois Moreau (Double Bass) . The duo play jazz and Latin standards and originals: music for head, heart and feet. And there will be some surprises! You can buy copies of the new Urthona magazine on the night. There will also be meditation in the main shrine room from 6 pm, introduced and guided for those who are new to it and would like a taster.
Sat 1 July 7-9pm , West London Buddhist Centre, 45A Porchester Road W2 5DP , entry by donation.
