‘A bud in the forest at midnight’ - Poetry as Meditation with Lani O’ Hanlon

  • 14 September, 7pm and 15 September, 11am
  • Online

As part of Poetry Town Dungarvan, the Arts Office, Waterford City and County Council, is inviting applications from adults who would like to attend ‘A bud in the forest at midnight’ Poetry as Meditation with Lani O’ Hanlon. 

There are two available online sessions via zoom on Tuesday 14 September at 7pm and on Wednesday 15 September at 11am. Each session will last for approximately one hour and are free of charge to selected applicants. 

Please note that places are limited so do not apply unless you can fully commit to attending.  

If you are interested in participating in this meditation based poetry session, please email your contact details (including your postal address) to morgan@waterfordcouncil.ie on or before 12 noon on Monday 6th September 2021. 

You can indicate if you have a preference for a particular session but we cannot guarantee which one you will be assigned if successful. You can only do one workshop not both (the content is the same in each). Priority will be given to those resident within Waterford City & County Council’s administrative area. If the amount of applications for each session exceeds available places, then places will be assigned by making a draw of those who have submitted their contact details in advance of the deadline. Decisions will issue no later than 10/9/2021. 

The Russian poet Osip Mendelston believed that poems came to him from sources beyond his own mind. When we read poetry that comes from that place we become alert, still and present. For this hour Lani will explore the landscape of the body, and the landscape around us in Co. Waterford through breath, sound and poetry. Bring a notebook, pen and an open mind.
