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)
