About the Talk
Yves Raguin S.J. in his book “Les déserts de Dieu” (“God’s deserts”) opens his Christian faith to the experience of Zen spirituality and the Chinese care for sensibility and imagination. He describes how God’s presence goes beyond all expectations, ideas and words. In this respect, he also opens a space for a poetic approach of life described as a new perception of the unity of mind, affection and body. In dialogue with contemporary French writers such as Jean-Pierre Lemaire and Gérard Bocholier we shall see how the writing and reading of poetry may also decipher the world as a perpetual Creation leading to a dynamic integrative communion between God, the others and the self.
