Writing Circles and Events

Writing Life

In this circle, we enliven the capacities of contemplation and reflection with  writing exercises in relationship with nature, art and poetry.   With “poetic license” we open the imagination to the life changing power of language.  Poetry is a field of energy and for our practice, it includes songs, stories, and musings that cause a stillness, an exultation or an inner invitation.  Meets twice a month for three months on Tuesday evenings $120
