POETRY AND TRANSFORMATION

Wednesday, March 7th, 5:15 – 7:45 pm in the Library Meeting Room

Poetry can be a gateway to the heights and depths of Being. In this workshop, we will work with the poetry of Rumi, 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.

 

Susanne West is a Professor of Psychology at John F. Kennedy University, and a recipient of the Harry L. Morrison Distinguished Teaching Award at JFKU.  She is the author of Soul Care for Caregivers: How to Help Yourself While Helping Others, and the founder of two writing programs: Words with Wings and Deep Writing. Her first collection of poetry will be coming out in 2018. More information about Susanne is available at www.susannewest.com
