Poetry & Awakening Teaching

What more can any of us ask for but to be created by the very thing we feel compelled to create.

Mark Nepo, The River of Light

We can awaken to and through writing poetry because it requires us to be fully embodied and aware of ourselves and the world we live in.

About Subhaga

Subhaga’s third collection of poems, Transitory, is forthcoming from BOA Editions in the fall of 2023. She’s the author of two previous collections, and a teacher of awakening and the writing process. A graduate of the Warren Wilson MFA Program for writers, her first book, Elegy with a Glass of Whiskey, won the 2003 A. Poulin, New Poetry America Prize from BOA Editions. Since that time, her work has appeared in a variety of print and online journals. Moving to the Methow Valley in North Central WA in 2014 and joining the Confluence Poets reinvigorated her creative process, resulting in many of the poems in her Blue Hunger, released by Methow Press in 2020. She is a teacher in the Trillium Awakening spiritual path and lives and creates in the spacious North Cascade Mountains with her partner, Sugandhi Katharine Barnes, whose painting, Stella Polaris, is the cover art for Blue Hunger.
