The Embodiment Conference: Embodied Poetry Panel

October 15 @ 9:00 am - 10:00 am MDT

Free

Please join facilitator Brooke McNamara for this heartening, lively conversation in which four poets from around the globe will weave diverse perspectives on creative process, share their poetry live, and invite you into your innate inspiration and poetic powers of perception. 

Poetry can be medicine for sickness in our psyches and it can also be a wake up call when our eyes glaze over and we forget to be curious. Poetry invites or demands a quality of attention from our perceiving of the world, which, when engaged, can start to notice raw beauty everywhere we look. This way of seeing can reveal meaning in our lives, and in this way, poetry can save us. It lets us celebrate and grieve our aching world, instead of trying to figure it all out. Poetry reaches an arm into the unknown and brings back evidence that our finite lives are happening inside of infinity. On that dizzying perspective, poetry gets us drunk, drunk enough to tell more of the truth. And when we tell the truth it rings like a bell, it buzzes in our cells, and maybe we can feel more alive and less afraid. 

Come listen, write, play and reorient to see with fresh eyes and speak from the depths of your body and being.
