An Evening with Drew Dellinger: Poetry, Cosmology and Justice


Recorded live in Oakland, this combination talk and poetry performance contains 10 spoken word poems, plus reflections on the convergence of ecology and social justice.




“Drew Dellinger is one of the most inspired poets of his generation and a troubadour for all who seek a world of justice, generosity, compassion and peace.”
– Rabbi Michael Lerner, Editor Tikkun and Chair, The Network of Spiritual Progressives

“Drew is the Earth’s grapevine, the transcendent delivery man, the vocable giver, the dispatcher of the unremembered, the confabulating oath keeper, the stand-in for the intimate grief that holds us in thrall. His poems are bodies of light seen by startled new eyes and long after he speaks they weave the unconscious, stitching us to our collective and uncertain future.”

– Paul Hawken, author of Blessed Unrest and The Ecology of Commerce
“Dellinger is an electrifying, cosmopoetic presence as he whirls through galaxies, cuts across time, spirals into subatomic structures, stops on a nanosecond, rhymes and listens. Listen–he’s crossing M.L. King with Thomas Berry, Teilhard de Chardin with hip hop. His great-great-grandchildren speak to him in dreams that will make your heart stop.”
– China Galland, author of Love Cemetery, Unburying the Secret History of Slaves

“Drew’s poetry catapults us out of the sleep of conditionality. It is a clarion call that reawakens our primordial memory that we are made of the stuff of stars, along with our responsibility to care, ever so tenderly and passionately, for the cosmic majesty with which we have been entrusted.”
– Michael Bernard Beckwith, author of Spiritual Liberation~Fulfilling Your Soul’s Potential
