Writing as a Path to Awakening - Conversation Continued with Albert Flynn DeSilver [Episode 182]
5 days ago
Continuing our conversation with author and Poet Laureate, Albert Flynn DeSilver, discover why poetry is the foundation all great writing (and why it couples so well with yoga and meditation). Albert opens up and tells us about his “failed” TedX talk, and why we should allow ourselves to write, even if we think it is “crap.” He shares several breakthrough tips about the editing process, as well as some of his own favorite journaling prompts. You won’t think about poetry, reading or writing the same way after this special interview. Albert Flynn DeSilver is an American poet, memoirist, novelist, speaker, and meditation teacher at the Spirit Rock Meditation Center in Woodacre, California. Albert teaches nationally at the Omega Institute, Shambhala Mountain Center, the Esalen Institute and at writing conferences nationally. Albert is also an internationally published poet and served as Marin County California’s very first Poet Laureate from 2008-2010. Albert has read and shared the stage with U.S Poet Laureate Kay Ryan, International bestselling authors Cheryl Strayed, Elizabeth Gilbert, Maxine Hong Kingston, and many others. His new book, “Writing as a Path to Awakening: A Year to Becoming an Excellent Writer and Living an Awakened Life,” based on his popular writing workshops by the same name, was released from Sounds True in September of 2017. He is also the author of several books of poems and the memoir “Beamish Boy,” (2012) which Kirkus Reviews called “a beautifully written memoir, poignant and inspirational.” He lives in Northern California. Join Albert at an upcoming retreat such as his Weekend of Writing & Mindfulness in the Redwoods at 1440 Multiversity June 8-10 OR at the Omega Institute in NY July 8-13.
