Poetry is one of the most universal ways to reach heart and soul.  Where other words communicate thoughts and ideas, poetry seemingly bypasses the intellect and conveys feelings and insights directly from one heart to another.

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.

Compelling and great community spirit

I attended one of the delightful poetry nights at Newington Green, and what a rare treat it was! The choice of readings and music, the incense burning, the sensitivity of the leader - it was all very meditative and thought provoking indeed. Probably my favourite part was the communal meal we shared halfway through - fresh, delicious veggie pasta, accompanied by candelight and more wonderful readings through out. I left with a definite spirit of community - well worth the very cheap donation fee! Highly recommended.
