Megan Burns : part four

Why is poetry important?

I think it’s similar to why belief in something outside the smallness of yourself is important or why meditation is important. Poetry teaches us how to be and how to be in the world and how to see the world clearly. It teaches our bodies and minds how to hear and speak truth and that is powerful. And empowered beings are able to shift experience from suffering to joy. It is a healing modality both in practice and in performance.
