Thriving Together: What the Trees & Nature Have to Say
March 14 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm CDT$25.00
As Eremos explores the theme of “Thriving Together” in 2024, so too will our quarterly poetry sessions dive into what it means to thrive together amidst life challenges, a presidential election year, and world tensions.
Every quarterly session will feature a different facilitator using the wisdom of poems and quotes to speak to a unique aspect of what thriving together might look like, helping us to connect more fully to each other, and inviting you to write the words your soul longs to share in the moment.
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

Thriving Together: Rooted in Spirit, Awakened in Possibility, and Connected in Community.
Using the imagery of flourishing trees to guide us in 2024, journey with Eremos for a year of becoming more rooted in Spirit, awakening to possibilities like branches stretching to the sky, and strengthening our connections to each other like the root systems of trees.
