“Out beyond ideas of wrongdoing and rightdoing there is a field. I'll meet you there. When the soul lies down in that grass the world is too full to talk about.” Rumi

Dear Tribe of Mat, Poem & Pen~

As I continue to re-vamp and re-inspire the course materials for Poetry & the Body Fall 2022 from craft study to experiential embodiment, I can't help but grow increasingly excited again about this intersection of poetry, the body, and our modern day world in all of its myriad parts. It's as if Walt Whitman, First Aid Kit, Terrance Hayes and the numinous were crafting poems together out in a field beyond right doing or wrong.

Poetry and the Body Fall 2022
course promises:

1) We will engage with contemporary social issues

2) We will write toward and from embodied awareness & understanding with compassionate self-witness 

3) We will focus on both content and craft

4) We will explore how sacred mundane and profane can be doorways into deeper connect with ourselves, each other and something larger by way of our shared humanity alongside our unique differences of identity 
 

In this course, we will explore how our life experiences related to race, class, gender identity, war, trauma, grief and loss, addiction, and the ecstatic can be explored through poetry, and held by our poems. This course will include a focus on craft, provide weekly generative writing prompts, poem readings, podcast interviews, and live group discussion over virtual campfire.

We’ll also engage in weekly workshop. Each poet’s work will receive peer review weekly, as well as written comments from me. By the end of this series, you will have generated drafts of new poems, and perhaps revised others. You will have deepened your craft knowledge, explored new ways of approaching your poetry, and will have experienced poetry to be a self-care skill and community-building experience allowing you to inhabit yourself and your life and the world on and off the page in renewed and elevated ways.
