Course Description: As we rush through our days, the urge to center ourselves in something deep and sustaining intensifies.  Writing poetry not only serves this urge but shares many similarities to traditional spiritual paths: focus on presence, deep listening, sincere truth-telling, and the surrender to something beyond ourselves.


Fall 2’s theme, SHAPING THE FORMLESS will be a deep-dive into the ineffable, paradoxically, through pattern and form. As always, we will welcome the unexpected into our work, and we’ll read and write to our hearts’ content. All experience-levels and styles welcome.
