Mindscapes: Practice Poems


Mindscapes: Practice Poems by Éowyn Ahlstrom.



Often, contemplation and creativity arise together. This volume of poems expresses the myriad noticings of a dedicated mindfulness and yoga practitioner. Many of the poems were written during or shortly after periods of silent retreat, and so offer insights gleaned from in-depth meditation practice. Others arose in the process of cultivating presence of mind in daily life, so reflect the particulars of the cultural milieu of the author and her process of weaving non-judgmental wakefulness fully into every day.
