Wonderment and the Art of Being Alive: A Poetic Invitation
Poetry can help open so many doors—doors of healing, curiosity, epiphany, and intimacy. For four weeks, we’ll read and write poems together and explore how a poetry practice might bring us into a more present, more connected, more wonder-full way to engage with the world. Specifically, we’ll explore how poetry helps us offer our attention to what is happening all around us and inside us. Themes include: – Seeing the story behind the thing – Playing with how to look – Discovering metaphors – Reframing our perspective In every class, Rosemerry Wahtola Trommer will offer writing prompts to help reframe the self, to unlearn, and to fathom our connection with others, the world, and the divine. There will always be a chance to share, but only to the extent that it feels safe. All levels of poetry experience are welcome. The only prerequisite: your willingness to feel, listen, play, pick up a pen and see what happens next. Join us.
