The River Under the River (The Dharma Toolkit, Episode 27)

May 26, 09:15 PM

Let's start with this image: there's a river under the river. The wolf is there too. Alive and real and, sometimes, scary. But this is the true place of greater safety, and of a deeper freedom too. Join us for another inspiring conversation!

"Deserving a place in a realm where miracles happen"
Let's start with this image: there's a river under the river. Then follow it via the works of William Stafford and the creative lives of members of the Wolf at the Door group: poets and writers exploring the interplay of modes of attention in their chosen art forms, mediated by the practice of Buddhism.

The wolf is there too. Alive and real and, sometimes, scary. But this is the true place of greater safety, and of a deeper freedom too. 

Join us for another inspiring conversation, part of our mini-series on how to access the heights and depths of experience via the Arts, myth, symbol and story.

"To be willingly fallible is a creative act in which the imagination participates."
