Abstract: For a long time, poetry and meditation have been close to my heart. Separately and together they have helped me savor the beauty of nature, the warmth of friends and family and my inner strength and courage. They give space and self-compassion for feelings of anger and sorrow that have lead sometimes to a sense of common humanity and compassion for others. Poetry and mindfulness give me a deeper, more heartfelt perspective of what is happening on my hero’s journey.
