A Weekend with Red Hawk, Celebrated Poet, Writer and Teacher of Consciousness Studies
to Mar 24

A Weekend with Red Hawk, Celebrated Poet, Writer and Teacher of Consciousness Studies


Red Hawk is the author of ten books - eight of poetry and two highly acclaimed works in the field of consciousness studies: Self Observation, the Awakening of Consciousness (which has been translated into ten languages) and Self- Remembering, the Path of Unconditional Love. His new book Return to the Mother is the companion to these two volumes and completes the trilogy.

Red Hawk has shared the stage with other notables of our age, including Rita Dove, Coleman Barks, Gary Snyder, and Allen Ginsberg.

Please join Red Hawk, and his wife, Chandrika and Circle Yoga Shala for a rare opportunity March 23rd and 24th, 2018: 

Friday, 3/23 Meet and greet with Red Hawk including a potluck dinner

Saturday, 3/24 Poetry Reading by Red Hawk and book signing. 50% of book sales is being donated by him to the Shala. Much gratitude. 

For centuries the Tao Te Ching, the book of ancient wisdom by Lao Tsu, has offered insight, inspiration, and consolation to millions of readers. Although numberless translations and commentaries exist around the world, Return to the Mother, A Lover’s Handbook, is a groundbreaking effort and a unique contribution to the canon of American poetry. In this volume, internationally known poet Red Hawk offers poetic reflections on these much-loved ancient sutras. This collection of 94 contemporary poems (each,16 lines), brings this perennial wisdom into the 21st century—and adds the flavor and fragrance of Zen and Gurdjieff’s dharma teachings in a spare poetic marriage with Lao Tsu. 

Each poem invites the reader to bring this wisdom to his or her daily practice of self-observation and self-remembering. The poet begs for a return to the true Self, which he symbolizes as the place of the Mother within.

Our Mother has no words, She is
Silence, She is the present, here-

now. To be here-now, in this body,
is to return to Our Mother . . .
