Is your soul asleep? Have those bees that work in the night stopped? And those waterwheels—are they going around now, with the cups empty, carrying only shadow? Robert Bly, Lewis Hyde, Miguel Rivera and Orland Bishop trade poems from Antonio Machado, William Blake, Allen Ginsberg, and more. This is an exclusive recording of the 1995 Minnesota Men’s Conference. Register and attend the next Conference by visiting http://www.minnesotamensconference.com
Founded by Robert Bly in 1984, the Minnesota Men’s Conference celebrates the telling of old stories, the gifts of poetry and music, and opening our hearts to grief, wildness, and joy. We all have a yearning for lives of richness and meaning; this five-day conference is a unique opportunity to enrich ourselves in a community of other men.
