In our story, we are the main character, the one who interprets and controls every movement and expectation. If you don't like the story of your life, as you are the author, you can change it. And that is exactly the challenge; to take control of our creation." don Miquel Ruiz.

    Phyllis Cole-Dai – Poetry of Presence

    Voice Rising radio show hosted by Kara Johnstad
    FREE ARCHIVE

    Mindfulness poems invite us to bring our whole self to whatever moment we’re in and truly live it. They encourage us to be more present, more attentive and compassionate, in the living of our days. They grant us a taste of being good enough, just as we are, in this world, just as it is. Join Voice Visionary Kara Johnstad and Author, Poet Phyliss Cole-Dai, in a heartfelt conversation on the poetry of presence.

    How can we live more undefended lives? How may we embrace living more deliberately and consciously, opening ourselves to Divine Intimacy? Can reading and writing poetry be a path to deeper communion with our world?

    Especially in times of challenge, poetry offers us comfort. It expresses the ineffable – that which is beyond logic and linear thinking. It allows us to make friends with mystery.
