Exploring the meaning and value of the arts


Join Maitreyabandhu on Saturday 10th April at 7pm (UK Time) on our YouTube Channel as he interviews Charles Eisenstein.

Charles Eisenstein is an important speaker and writer focussing on themes of civilisation, consciousness, money, climate change, and human cultural evolution. In 2017 he was interviewed by Oprah Winfrey on SuperSoul Sunday. He is the author of many books and essays including Climate – A New Story and his brilliant and beautifully written book The Ascent of Humanity. Maitreyabandhu will be in conversation with him about the need for a new human story as well as about the end of the ‘story of separation’.

PoetryEast is an ongoing series of cultural events at the London Buddhist Centre and online, hosted by Maitreyabandhu, exploring the meaning and value of the arts. Each event focuses on the life and work of a single guest artist, by way of an interview and a reading. Previous guests have included Jorie GrahamColm Tóibín and the psychiatrist and thinker Iain McGilchrist.
