Poetry workshop: Profound Poetry

Vrijdag 6 september 2024, van 16:00 tot 17:00 | Library Benoordenhout

Kosten: Free of charge

Profound Poetry invites you to reflect on the essence of life at a deeper level. With each carefully chosen line in these poems, every rhythmic breath of words, poems reveal the hidden treasures of human existence.

Profound poetry can guide us through the complexity of life. They weave feelings and insights together into a beautiful artwork. These inspiringly profound poems are experienced together during monthly gatherings, providing a connecting and creative challenge.

Every month, we read a poem together from a different "wisdom tradition." There is space during the workshop for mutual conversation to reflect on the deeper meaning. The feelings or insights that arise are attempted to be expressed by writing our own haiku.

The poems are predominantly read in English, conversation and reflection can be done in both Dutch and English. Therefore, both English-speaking and Dutch-speaking visitors from Benoordenhout are warmly welcome.

The discussions are led by Berend-Jan Hilberts, a resident of Benoordenhout, and a coach for those encountering the deeper layers of life and/or wanting to engage with the larger themes of life. Berend-Jan also has a great curiosity about different wisdom traditions, such as Taoism, Sufism, Buddhism, Advaita Vedanta, and mystical currents within Christianity.
