Poetry and Contemplation with Jan Zwicky

October 2, 2013, 12:00 AMOctober 7, 2013, 12:00 AM EDT

Delve into poetry as a way of knowing the world. Poetic or contemplative attention — what Simone Weil called “the natural prayer of the soul” — opens the ear, eye, heart and mind to the being and beings around us. In doing so, it reveals to us, as poets, that our best work is not about ourselves.
Discover how the power of contemplation can inspire your creativity. Learn to listen to and edit your poems. Dynamic group meetings include discussion of participants’ works in progress as well as exercises designed to foster contemplative awareness and literary technique. Each participant has the opportunity to meet one-on-one with presenter Jan Zwicky.
