Home Was Elsewhere

By (author): Stanley Fefferman

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.
