Poet Rupi Kaur (milk and honey): “We have a duty to dream”

In This Episode

Acclaimed poet and illustrator Rupi Kaur (#1 New York Times bestselling book milk and honey) joins The Art of Kindness with Robert Peterpaul for a spectacular season three premiere! The powerhouse delves into her writing process, how she stays motivated on tough days, her new short film with Stacy’s entitled Rise (which premiered at Sundance 2023 and celebrates the resilience of women) and all things kindness, of course.

Rupi Kaur is a Canadian poet, illustrator, photographer, and author. Born in Pinjob, India, Kaur emigrated to Canada at a young age with her family. She began performing poetry in 2009 and rose to fame on Instagram, eventually becoming a popular poet through her three collections of poetry. Rupi wrote, illustrated and self-published her first poetry collection, milk and honey. Next came its artistic sibling, the sun and her flowers. These collections have sold more than 10 million copies and have been translated into over 40 languages. Her latest collection, home body, debuted #1 on bestseller lists across the world. As she has done from the very beginning, Rupi self- produced Rupi Kaur Live, the first poetry special of its kind, which debuted on Amazon Prime Video in 2021. Rupi’s work touches on love, loss, trauma, healing, femininity and migration.
