An interfaith colloquium and contemplative “rebellion against tyrants,” exposing the folly of spiritual isolationism. Three sources of contemporary meaning-magic in which the Poetics of Space meets the Wisdom of the Talmud, Geomancy meets Creationism, Poetry meets Theology, and the Fire meets the Flood.


The Winter Orchard
| Nina Pick

Poems burning in the aftermath of the 2016 American presidential election. “We huddle,” writes Alan Mudd, “in a brittle sunlight, despairing hopeful urgencies at the end of a branch for a bud refusing to blossom, returning, in fact, back to its dormant frozen state… beings of opposition & catastrophe made up of inseparable histories, haunted by uncertainty, compelled simultaneously into the realities of nature/the illusions of mind…”

Poetic Faith | David Mutschlecner

A journal of theopoetics, where poetry shines a light into theology, cleansing it of dogmatism while nurturing inclusivity. “David Mutschlecner’s meditations,” writes Elizabeth Robinson, “demonstrate the mutual suffusion of metaphysics and poetics. His terse essays fearlessly take on the most daunting subjects: beauty, signification, revelation, presence, relationship… Suddenly, the reader finds herself in the midst of a universe that peels back its skin to reveal its living core.”

Morning Rites | Reed Bye

A new collection by one of America’s most lucid contemplative poets. “[Reed Bye] lets the round world come into the round eye on its own terms,” writes David Mutschlecner. “There is no imposition, no going out there, so to speak, because whatever we are is already ‘round the pools.’ There is no subterfuge, no guile. Deep clarity is found—by a rare wonder—in pure utterance.”

David Mutschlecner

is the author of four titles from Boise State's Ahsahta Press: Esse (2002), Sign (2007), Enigma and Light (2012), and Icon (2018). He grew up in Bloomington, Indiana; moved to Santa Fe, New Mexico, in his mid-twenties, attending graduate school at St. John's College; and has now called New Mexico home for over twenty years. Paul Hoover has called David "an independent figure in contemporary poetry, because he cares deeply about divinity and the meaning of meaning." He is, in Elizabeth Robinson's words, "a tutelary spirit that guides us into the plenitude of poetry."
