Why Mindfulness Poetry Matters

“Whether or not we have a formal mindfulness practice, mindfulness poetry can help us keep (or regain) our footing in a world of tremendous upheaval. It can help prepare us to act with clarity amidst confusion, with lovingkindness amidst cruelty. It can also provide a refuge, where we can recharge when we’re worn down, where we can just be.”

—From “The Invitation,” the book’s introduction
