Contemplating Poetry

Interested in trying a new Spiritual Practice? This weekly gathering offers a space to share personal responses to selected poems. The sessions are based on a group form of an ancient practice called Lectio Divina. We will use the words of the poets not to analyze their meaning but as as a jumping-off point. In this one-hour gathering, we will listen to, respond to, and rest with poetry. The focus will be our own internal responses. We will explore what resonates personally as we enter the poems, what we need to pay attention to at this time in our lives.
