The Listening Circle: Poetry & Storytelling

March 14 @ 5:00 pm - 6:30 pm PDT


After a magical and successful unfolding of the Listening Circle 2023, we are back with the winter series 2024.

This Winter series is an invitation to the spoken word artists, poets, storytellers, songwriters and acoustic musicians to come join us in a gathering once again. Sign up starts at 4:30 pm and readings/ performances at 5:00 to 6:30pm. Spots are limited. Pre registration is required.


Syra R Khan is a poet, a story teller and a spoken word artist. Her work has been influenced by her own self unfoldment as well as growing up with Sufi poetry, mysticism, esoteric and ancient philosophy. She is a Holistic health practitioner and a Meditation Guide. She is also part of Banyen Books and Banyen’s vents team. Her poetry is available on a free meditation app Insight Timer.

From The Listening Circle summer series 2023:

“My experience with the Listening Circle has been quite an expansive process. Syra as a facilitator is just amazing with her sense of being while holding space for the group. She made it such a safe environment for me to explore and access parts of me that I didn’t think I could. My performance have become better and this experience of beauty and grace, I will take with me in my growth journey. Thank you. I look forward to more adventures to come.”

“The Listening Circle by Banyen Books led by Syra had been absolutely life changing. The space is incredibly welcoming, unconditionally accepting and utterly up-lifting. It has been a privilege to attend and participate in the circle and meet all the wonderful humans who have attended. I have grown immensely as a person and as an artist. I am so grateful for the space to share my work. I am excitedly looking forward to more events to come.”

~ Stefania Rizzo, Poet and Spoken word artist.
