‘Pilgrimages’ – a series of meditative podcasts by poet Kenneth Steven

‘Pilgrimages’ –  a series of meditative podcasts created by poet Kenneth Steven

We are delighted that Kenneth Steven agreed to develop this series of podcasts specially commissioned for St. Bede’s – a creative emergence from the restrictions of our current times!

Each session will be hosted by Julia MacDonald who will:

  • introduce the Kenneth’s podcast;
  • allow space to listen and respond to each of Kenneth’s reflective creations; and
  • then invite group members to explore a series of questions/’wayposts’ offered by Kenneth as a way of deepening engagement with each of his works. 

We will explore each of Kenneth’s podcasts through a combination of personal reflection time and gentle group sharing to give participants the opportunity to contemplate and discuss ‘new paths’ inspired by each theme at greater length.

This is a unique opportunity to hear Kenneth personally sharing these newly created works.

Kenneth Steven is best-known as a poet. 14 of his collections have been published over the years, & individual poems have appeared in top literary journals across the globe. Much of his poetry is inspired by the wildscape of his native Highland Scotland; much has resulted from his love of the Celtic Christian story whose deepest roots are for him found in the island of Iona off Scotland’s west coast. He has written & presented numerous poetry programmes for BBC Radio & travels widely to give readings and talks, he lectures both at home and abroad.
