Poetry East

When self- transcendence is consciously cultivated in poetry, in music, or in painting and sculpture, Art becomes a kind of spiritual discipline. - Sangharakshita


PoetryEast is an ongoing series of cultural events at the London buddhist Centre, hosted by Maitreyabandhu, exploring the meaning and value of the arts. Each event focuses on the life and work of a single guest artist, by way of an interview and a reading. Previous guests have included Michael Frayn, Don Patterson and Colm Tóibín. Our two featured writers this spring comclude a series of evenings in association witht he London Review of Books. For updates and news sign up to our mailing list and follow us on facebook
