Some of the themes suggested by the poem and exhibition resonate with health, well-being and healing.
Many respected yogis have referenced the poetry of T.S. Eliot in their instruction and practice. Shantih, Shantih, Shantih is a quote from the last line of The Waste Land poem written by TS Eliot, a sacred chant used to close mantras that is both mindful and empowering.

‘Journeys with The Waste Land’ is a three-year innovative project, bringing members of the community and Turner Contemporary together to develop the gallery’s major spring 2018 exhibition. The starting point is T. S. Eliot’s famous poem, 'The Waste Land' (1922), parts of which were written whilst Eliot was convalescing in Margate.

Every Tuesday, 2-3pm. These free classes must be booked in advance.
