Poetry Alchemy for Our Times
Poetry Alchemy for Our Times is a ground-breaking interview series hosted by Ríonach Aiken. In this series, Ríonach engages leaders, teachers and agents of change in conversations about the power of poetry to restore and transform our lives.
Poetry is the perfect counterweight to the challenges of our times.
When we are caught up in our to-do lists, striving and struggling with overwhelm, poetry can remind us what life is really about. It brings us home to our deeper values.
Although we are ever more connected through technology, people feel increasingly isolated and alone. Poetry helps us to know that others share our experience and enables us to communicate our feelings more authentically.
As human beings we constantly have to navigate through inner and outer worlds of tremendous complexity. Poetry offers a language that is large enough to hold that complexity.
