About the Book

Robert Gray calls The Moving World ‘a remarkable and original book’ while Tim Park calls it ‘hugely ambitious and admirably modest’. In his third collection of poetry Michael Heald turns away from the imaginative world to explore that of meditative contemplation. Departing from traditional poetic composition, Heald draws on the practice of Vipassana which takes bodily sensations (vedana) as the primary object of meditation.

More praise for the collection
‘This book seems to me a daring and triumphant project. I hope many people will be strongly drawn to it, as I was.’ —Robert Gray

‘The quiet mystery of these poems will be an invitation to Vipassana. Anyone accepting that invitation will surely one day exclaim: so this is what the poet meant!’ — Tim Parks
