This month’s Spiritual Reading Group is titled “Words Are Transformed Flesh: A Theopoetic Feast Tasting Plate of Rubem Alves.”

Was Rubem Alves a poet, psychoanalyst, theologian, or philosopher? Yes.
Somewhere beyond tidy definition and cataloguing “The Poet, The Warrior, The Prophet” is an invitation to visit a place that you’ve been before but forgotten you knew.
In the same way the Eucharist is a poetic ritual of anthropophagy, Rubem asks us to take in his words and be changed by them.

A quote from Alves, “Dreams are this: that which the body longs for and yet cannot be eaten”


Please put these dates in your diary. You are welcome to come along to any of these sessions, which are held in the Carmelite Library on the third Tuesday of each month February to November, starting at 4.30 pm.

More details will be provided about each one closer to the event.
