Come to this weekly candle-lit event to experience stillness, music, and poetry. Poetry readings are interspersed with meditative music and a period of silence. You are welcome to offer readings that you bring with you or from the poetry that is provided at the event.  Come just for the time of music,  silence, and shared readings (19.00-19.45), or stay for a more intimate time of closer reflection on the poems (20.30-21.30). A light vegetarian supper is provided in between.  A selection of readings is provided, but feel free to bring your own.  Led by Andrew Pakula.
