In this episode of The Poet’s Dreamingbody, we explore the Wayfaring Poet Profile of T’ang Dynasty poet-meditator Du Fu (712-770). We also explore four modes of dreamingbody awareness that anyone can utilize in landscape practice and creative practice: the visual map, the sound map, the fragrance map, and the kinesthetic map. In addition to curated poems from various collections of Du Fu, there is also mention of an upcoming book release by Peter Levitt and Rebecca Nie featuring three Daoist women and their poetry (due out December 2022), Yin Mountain.

Yin Mountain: The Immortal Poetry of Three Daoist Women, translated by Peter Levitt and Rebecca Nie

The introduction of women poets from ancient China to Western audiences is itself an epoch-making endeavor. The brilliance of the translations in Yin Mountain and the elucidation of the background material are breathtaking. —Kazuaki Tanahashi
