Pathways to Presence; Poetry, Meditation & Conversation

  • A Balm for Our Times

    Pathways to Presence; Poetry, Meditation & Conversation

Jan 12th, 2021
Class Size: 

Poems have a magical way of bringing us closer to our lives, giving us a new view, a deeper view, a little more understanding of what makes us tick. During these times of great change, connecting with others over a poem and in meditation offers a soothing balm for the mind, heart and body.

Drawing on poems from a variety of poets, each two-hour session includes reading poems together, meditation, and exploring how the poems connect us to the wisdom of the Dharma.

Everyone is welcome. No prior background in either meditation or poetry is needed. Just bring your curious mind and willing heart. The poems will be sent in advance of each session and there is no homework.
