Holding the Paradox alive and well inside Poem
I love this course! Just love it! For long-time writers…this opens some new/old doors in our practice, offering fresh vistas….powerful new stances….that ignite us in unknown ways…yummmmmmmm! Each class offers a set of reading, ruminations and poetry/journaling assignments that bring us to this world and our lives with fresh, un-judging intensity, living with the yes/no, dark/light, sorrow/joys that are our truth, and seed the depths of our best work…a transforming experience!
Voices In Flowers
Writing in the Garden
Flowers speak….teach…sing…heal… Invoking their presence, in our writing, as guides and guardians, for insight, assistance and inspiration: engaging our minds and hearts and pens with their color, scent, sacred geometries, forms, their science and ancient stories…brings us into alignment with the inbreath and outbreath of Beauty in this world… Each week we focus on a single flower, offering sensual, botanical, mythic and poetic notes to bring us into deep, celebratory connection…A pure, intoxicating pleasure for Gardener/Writers!
