This event is outside – if it is raining it is cancelled*The Shivastan Poetry Ashram is a community based independent book shop, art gallery, giftshop & grassroots co-operative promoting poetry, friendship, wisdom & compassion for all beings located in central Woodstock NY.
Frequent gatherings involve an outdoor sunset bonfire in a beautiful secret garden; an informal poetry/music/story sharing circle; & usually a vegetarian potluck.
The Woodstock Shivastan Poetry Ashram was started by poet & publisher Shiv Mirabito – it is loosely based on Ed Sanders’ LES community Peace Eye Bookshop, Allen Ginsberg’s Committee on Poetry, & the Spirit Catcher Bookshop on Freak Street in Kathmandu. It is the home base of the small press, Shivastan Press {Woodstock~Kathmandu}, which has published limited edition poetry chapbooks & broadsides on handmade paper in Nepal since 1997 by some of the most exciting poets in America. It is our 21st anniversary this year!
