Nowhere is Chögyam Trungpa Rinpoche’s inner life more accessible than in his poetry.

Rinpoche’s poems are filled with striking imagery, passion, humor, tenderness, and pride. They contain personal reflections, appreciations, incisive social commentary, and spontaneous flashes of profound teaching.

We will explore both the poetry and Rinpoche’s creative process, as well as how he used poetry to awaken his students.

David Rome was both scribe and editor for hundreds of Chögyam Trungpa’s poems and edited four volumes of his selected poems, including First Thought Best Thought and Timely Rain, both published by Shambhala Publications.
