This is over for this year – we hope to run another so do keep an eye on this page.

This retreat is for poets who want to explore meditation as a way of enhancing their work. The mornings will consist of meditation tuition and practice led by Maitreyabandhu. The afternoons are given over to writing workshops: ‘Explorations in Form’ with Mimi Khalvati and ‘Principles of Composition and Translation’ with David Constantine, and our special guest speaker the American poet, Robert Hass. The retreat will be held at Adhisthana Retreat Centre, just outside of Ledbury. No interest in Buddhism is assumed.
