Words Under the Words

with Naomi Shihab Nye and Ryushin Paul Haller
May 22-27, 2015 (Friday-Wednesday)

Everyone is already experienced. We are always beginners.

Dip into nourishing wells of words and silence.

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!
