|with Naomi Shihab Nye and Ryushin Paul Haller Dip into nourishing wells of words and silence.
May 23-28 (Friday-Wednesday)
Everyone is already experienced. We are always beginners.
Fuel up with poetry and quietude, allowing them to replenish one another. A writing circle of the encouraging kind! We will share beloved poems, writing in response, discussing process and particulars, finding first drafts…lines and images… listening to one another, language springing up from the many voices and shared daily meditation. Resonance, resilience, simplicity, and a writing walk too!
Please note that the retreat fee does not include accommodations. Retreats begin late afternoon on the indicated start date and end in the morning on the indicated end date. Visit the Rooms & Rates section and determine your preferred accommodations before making your reservations request online.
