Sandzén
In a life properly lived, you’re a river. You touch things lightly or deeply; you move along because life herself moves, and you can’t stop it; you can’t figure out a banal game plan applicable to all situations; you just have to go with the “beingness” of life, as Rilke would have it.

IN THE COMPANY OF RILKE.

Rainer Maria Rilke was a giant of twentieth-century writing who is quickly becoming a visionary voice for our own time, captivating readers not only with his brilliance but also the way he boldly addresses the “deepest things.” Speaking through his own contradictions and ambivalences, he gives readers a profound understanding of the complex beauty of the human existence.

In her new book, In The Company of Rilke (Tarcher/Penguin, on sale Nov 10), bestselling author and spiritual leader, Stephanie Dowrick, invites the reader into the transcendent and piercingly beautiful world of the much-loved poet, and reveals how we can connect with our inner life through his poetry.
