Sun
Poem as Portal
Oct 22 @ 12:00 pm – 1:00 pm

Through the elasticity of metaphor, poetry provides a direct portal into our own lives. They are our custom-made ground for cultivating awareness, charting the lives we want to lead, letting go of obstacles, walking in peace, nurturing joy, enlivening spiritual practice and dwelling in sacred unity with ourselves, with one another, with all of creation. The process is helpful to everyone, especially those who want to resolve inner turmoil, improve relationships, deepen unity with the Light within and live more joyfully.
