Feeding the Soul

by Vishvapani (2020)

In this session Vishvapani briefly recaps everything covered in the retreat so far, and then outlines two approaches to Dharma practice: the ‘hedgehog’ – grounded in direct experience from the senses, and the ‘fox’ who steps outside and beyond, looking for the bigger picture.
He goes on to speak about the need to feed the soul and poetry and meditation are both examples of ways to do this. He examines a beautiful poem by William Wordsworth called Tintern Abbey which shows how Wordsworth went about his own meditation and how his contact with the sublime inspired his writing.

This talk is part of the series The Two Arrows: Dukkha to Insight.
