POETRY AND TRANSFORMATION

Poetry can be a gateway to the heights and depths of Being. In this workshop, we will work with the poetry of Mary Oliver, Jane Hirshfield, and Rilke as inspiration for writing exercises and reflective meditations that are focused on your personal transformation.

No prior writing experience is necessary.

Please, no laptops, but do bring your own writing supplies: paper or notebook, pencil or pen.

Words with Wings on Tuesday, April 2nd at 5:30 pm
