Garrett Phelan and Denys Candy present Zen Suite, a Meditation in Poetry and Song.
Denys and Garrett have been practicing Zen Meditation in the Plum Village tradition for
over 20 years. They were ordained by Thich Nhat Hanh as lay members of the Tiep Hein
Order. Denys and Garrett met through the practice of Zen meditation and discovered that
their artistic passions complemented each other. They experienced their songs and poems
as a kind of call and response, which led to the collaboration that became Zen Suite, a
Meditation in Poetry and Song. An earlier version of Zen Suite was presented at the Smith
College Poetry Center in 2016. Open mic follows program.
