the medicine of Understanding
a new operating system for self, relationship and community.
“It is no sign of good health, to be well adjusted, in a profoundly sick society.”
We are living through a crisis of Meaning. We can no longer reach back into our dated insitutions and systems; they simply were not designed to cope with the complexity and disconnection of modern life. Our forms of Spirituality do not seem to fit cleanly into the busyness and mania of our lives, and there never seems to be enough medicine in our practices and pursuits of wisdom to really affect the project of true wellness.
There are not only ways to be grappling with these projects, but there are undoubtedly better ways.
Eyes Wide Open Life exists to explore and pursue the better ways.
No pseudo-science, no spiritual junk food.
These are the hymns and cliff notes of a mystic’s journey, an essence of a message whose time is upon us now.
The poems in Keeper of the Flame, bring the reader along a journey to the rare insights mysticism yields about the World, about Life and how we navigate our sense of meaning and existential survival; A work rich in deep archetypal metaphor, and devoid of airy and diaphanous flotsam which we can sometimes associate with mysticism and spirituality.
Rocco Jarman has pressed into service, the English Language, in a way that opens a window onto the beautiful, often challenging account of seeking and discovery which defines the essence of Mysticism. The poems reflect a nuanced understanding of the human psyche that is both troubling and stirringly beautiful, ringing through at times with a sober sense of foreboding, a strident critique of apathy, but also a powerfully rousing inspiration and encouragement. The work is in equal measure both a bitter medicine and source of deep nourishment to the soul without insult to the intellect.
Keeper of the Flame is steeped in Language, leveraged to powerfully invoke Understanding and emotion, and eloquently crafted, in rhythm and style.
