Connect with Spirit through reading and writing poetry.
As we move through themes connected to our relationships with Divinity in our writing practice, we will journal and explore various forms of poetry. New to poetry? No problem! This course will accommodate everyone, from those with little experience to experts at reading, understanding, and crafting poems. Spirit meets us where we are and may speak to us in parables and poetry. We will meet Divinity and each other with the same loving spirit.
This program concludes with a two-hour poetry reading, at which all participants are invited to share something they have written during the program.
