Poetry of the Season: with Julie Bowman
September 12, 2023 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm CDT$25.00
Immerse Yourself in the Poetry of Each Season, Pen the Words Your Soul Longs to Share, and Enter into Each Season More Attentive to Its Gifts.
Poetry in community gives us the opportunity to reconnect with our authentic selves, to be witnessed by others, and to bear witness for others. This Quarterly Gathering calls on the wisdom of poetry to help us connect more fully to each season and the concerns of the time. Drop below the surface of the season to listen for personal meaning and feeling.
Join one of our passionate-about-poetry experienced facilitators to hear poetry and wise quotes that offer insight into the season and what is alive in our community at the time. Each session will include experiencing poetry, time for personal reflection, and an invitation to write and share.
No prior experience reading or writing poetry is necessary. Sharing your thoughts and writing is always by invitation.
Poetry is not only dream and vision; it is the skeleton architecture of our lives. It lays the foundations for a future of change, a bridge across our fears of what has never been before. –Audre Lorde
