All I did was stand on a stage with a butterfly net and inspire people to write poems. It seems that this was enough to get spotted by the team at www.acongruentlife.net. They capture “Inspirational Stories of Authenticity and Reinvention” and invited me to record a web interview. Here it is…

Wondering what he could do to help disaster-impacted people in Haiti, Andrew Newman started asking others on the street for poems to share. Little did he know at the time that “poemcatching” would take him around the world and result in several anthologies of collected poems.

In this episode of A Congruent Life, Andrew shares pieces of his story, including:

  • how he was motivated to start poemcatching,
  • veering away from several generations of a family-owned business,
  • discovering that he was, in fact, a creative person, and what that means for all of us,
  • advice for tapping into our creativity and “unfolding” our own creative visions,
  • the impact that men’s work and spiritual questing has had on his personal journey,
  • embracing mission as a larger framework for life beyond goals and tasks.
