Participant Testimonial

“It isn’t often that I have the opportunity to write spiritual poetry with a group of like-minded poets.  What we had was a supportive community, all addressing the same subjects, but each from their own style and viewpoint. The poems offered for inspiration were varied, some I knew and some I was surprised to learn.  While I do write on my own, the prompts were a good nudge to get something on paper. The whole group offered useful feedback and I got some ideas that I could take along to use in my own writing. Cit Ananda was skillful in gently encouraging everyone to share without undue pressure.  Being in the group was a valuable experience for me.”
-K’Shatria (Michael Young)

Cit Ananda Fowler

Cit Ananda Fowler, DDiv., experiences language as a proxy pointing to the mystical elegance of life. Her poetry is inspired by direct experience, captured in moments between perception when the mind falls quiet. She will tell you she catches poetry on the winds of the universe. She lives with her husband, two children, a fox-red lab, a rescue cat and a calico bunny in Idaho. Cit Ananda has work published or forthcoming in Mountain Path, Tiferet Journal, Amethyst Review and Soul-Lit. Explore more at
