Throughout the ages, practitioners have explored the elasticity of language to express understanding of dharma, proximity to the present, realization of impermanence, and encounters with the mind, just to name a few. The Buddhist Poetry Festival was created in celebration of this impulse to creatively share those personal experiences that seem to touch upon the universal.

The Buddhist Poetry Festival is designed for anyone who resonates with Buddhist teachings, regardless of their own level of engagement with any particular tradition. In addition to a full schedule of activities, there will also be unstructured points in the weekend, providing more time to reflect on the work we’re encountering, our own writings, or to engage more with our fellow writers and lovers of poetry.
