Cultivating the Poet – Christine Valters Paintner

May 24, 2020

“Consider allowing some time each day to listen to how the world is whispering beneath the rushed and goal-directed surface. To cultivate this kind of attention is to be a poet. We need far fewer how-to manuals and self-help books, and much more poetry.”

Christine Valters Paintner, PhD Dreaming of Stones: Poems

Cultivate the time to read and write poetry as a spiritual practice.

    Amen and amen.

  2. Oh yes! Love these thoughts. Reading and writing poetry have much to teach us about paying attention as we notice the sacred weaving itself into the warp of our weeks and days. ❤
