New 6-week series begins on August 2, 2023

Wednesdays from 1:00 pm – 2:30 pm EDT

These are great times to turn to the writings of spiritual poets old and new. We’ll look at poems from Rumi, Tagore, Jane Hirschfield, Mary Oliver, and others. You’ll be given writing prompts to write your own poems that may be of comfort to yourself and others.

The workshop will be held live via Zoom video conferencing.
