This retreat will comprise two evenings. Spiritual Poetry in Various Religious Traditions, the first evening, will look at and sample poetry from different faith traditions. Expect some lively discussion around the area of spirituality and its universality.
On the second evening, The Hidden Spirituality of Poetry, we will be reading poems that have an underlying spirituality that may not be traceable to any particular tradition but have a pervasive sense of Something Else. We hope to inspire some writing by participants on both evenings.
Mondays, May 10 and 17 (7:00 to 9:00 pm)
