The World of Natural Poetry

June 25 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm


4 Tuesdays, June 25 – July 16

This class examines poetry and the inspiration from nature: what nature teaches us and what we can learn from writing poetry based on nature. We’ll use exercises and discussions on equanimity, balance, life cycles, change, beauty, and restoration. The practice of writing in nature restores our relationship with ourselves and the world around us.
