Home Was Elsewhere reveals the intimacies of Stanley Fefferman's 20-year sojourn training in the world of the charismatic guru, Chogyam Trungpa. The poems show the author making himself at home in the master's world by his exertion in meditation practices where discipline is ornamented with spontaneous behaviours traditionally connected with Crazy Wisdom. The poems in this unique collection modulate from sex through spirituality to playfulness.
Stanley Fefferman has had careers as a journalist in print-media and on CBC National Radio, as a performance photographer and a music critic on the Web, as a licensed homeopathic practitioner and a Buddhist meditator teacher. He is Professor Emeritus at York University (1965-2006). He currently performs his poetry on the Canadian poetry circuit. His previous book is Home Was Elsewhere (Quattro Books, 2017).
