04.07.2018 | Writing Poetry as Contemplative Practice

April 7 @ 1:00 pm - 2:30 pm

Categories: Class Workshops, Lecture, Literature & Poetry, Misc, Storytelling


Contemplative practice, anything ranging from mindfulness to meditation to prayer to ascetic practices, can also be employed in writing practice. This writing collective will focus on how contemplative writing practice enriches and inspires the poet within, and we will practice writing that emerges from the experience. This may mean that inspiration for writing poetry will emerge out of contemplative practices, or it may mean that the practice of poetry writing is the contemplative practice itself. Time for meditative practice will be provided. Come prepared to write poetry, learn from contemplative writers, and share your work, if you feel so inspired.

This collective meets every Saturday from 1:00 p.m. to 2:30 p.m., Saturday, April 7 to Saturday, May 12. Advance registration is required.

Your registration cost includes all sessions. Single session admission purchases or refunds are not permitted.
