Poetry and Spiritual Practice (Interview Online)

The first poem I ever had published was in our church newsletter. I dictated it to my patient mother at the age of five.

At age fourteen, I started my daily practice of spiritual exercises ("SEs"), a form of active meditation. In my late twenties, I began writing poetry almost daily as well.

Coming full circle, I recently gave an interview to the church newsletter's online successor, The New Day Herald, about the intersection of poetry and spiritual practice.

You can read the interview, along with a poem, here.
