All are welcome.

Writing is a way of waking up to right here, right now, attending to what we see and hear and taste and touch.

We will practice daily writing in ways that will refresh and restore us. Perhaps we have nothing to say! Perhaps the poem has something to say through us! We will practice listening, remembering and imagining. Come only with a desire to discover, to write without knowing what you are doing, and a willingness to become more awake to yourself and the world.
