THE ART OF ALCHEMY: POETRY & SUSTAINABILITY IN A 21st CENTURY WORLD
In a fast paced 21st century world that challenges our ability to reconcile sacred alongside secular, how can embodiment practices & poetry alchemize the sacred, mundane & profane experiences of our heads and hearts into meaningful art? How can our life experiences and our creative writing connect us more deeply to ourselves, each other, and something larger? In the way the body is a vessel for experience, poetry and creative writing are vehicles for expression, connection & emotion. We can use the awareness and expanded perspective we gain in combining mindfulness, embodiment practices, and self-compassion with our poetry to uncover our beauty, experience the innate sacredness of our humanity, and integrate the material of our lives more fully into a deepened sense of wholeness.
By the end of this workshop, you will have generated a few drafts of new poems, and learned new self-care skills to sustain your own creative writing practice. You will have continued to cultivate a relationship with your own authentic voice, and will have new tools to care for mind, body & spirit in a beautiful and overwhelming 21st century world.
