Presented in partnership with River's Edge.


For those drawn to the teachings of Buddhism, classical Chinese poetry from the T’ang dynasty—the “golden age” of poetry in China—opens a gate into the wisdom of the Buddha and other Zen mystics and masters.


Join us for a contemplative and experiential program that opens with a guided meditation for entering into a state of stillness and receptivity and unfolds to a mindful engagement via lectio divina with classical Chinese poems that embody Buddhist teachings on impermanence, interdependence, and inner peace.


”One breath taken completely;

one poem, fully written, fully read—

in such a moment, anything can happen.”

-Jane Hirshfield
