Maggie Ross at Hay Festival 31 May 2015

I will be dialoguing with Rachael Kerr on Sunday, 31 May, 2015 at the Hay Festival in Hay-on Wye at 9 AM. The venue (appropriately, I hope!) is the Good Energy Stage. Tickets are £5.

Hope to see you there!

Thanks for coming to Hay! The 'vacillation' you referred to was imposed, not chosen. It was the end of the sixties, early seventies, and everything was in chaos. Even Bishop Moore, who finally professed me, said that if I had come to him then he would have thought I was just another nutter passing through his office.

I don't think one 'copes' or 'addresses' the upheaval; one lives with it until there is no other option than to pursue the contemplative life and let the implications take the hindmost. It's of the utmost importance not to make an issue out of anything, but to hide in plain sight, as it were, in order to de-fuse various situations and simplify one's life. In the end, these tensions tend to sort themselves out. The important thing is to persevere and detach from any 'price' that has to be paid: accepting contemplation entails accepting the consequences. Simple but not easy!
