Robert Lax: Poet-Mystic-Sage, evenings of reading, reflection and conversation with Steve T. Georgiou.
Robert Lax (1915-2000) was a major minimalist poet and Christian mystic of the 20th century. Lax was described by Thomas Merton, his close friend, as having “an inborn direction to the living God.” In 1964 Lax left his native New York for Greece and eventually became a hermit on Patmos, Isle of the Revelation. There he perfected his ascetic, mantra-like style of verse and lived an intensely love-centered life. Come explore the art and spirituality of Lax through presentations, readings, reflections and discussions.
Evenings facilitated by S.T. Georgiou, Ph.D., who teaches religion and spirituality at San Francisco City College and the Graduate Theological Union in Berkeley. He has authored an award-winning trilogy on Robert Lax, (based on his mentorship with the poet) and was recent Lax Lecturer at St. Bonaventure University, New York. His latest book is In the Beginning Was Love: Contemplative Poems of Robert Lax.
