Kuan Yin Medicine Poetry Circle

The Kuan Yin Medicine Poetry Circle deepens our understanding and application of Kuan Yin’s healing practice of "poetry medicine."
from 09:00 to 13:00

~ Are you looking for ways to connect with your heart and access self-healing?

~ Have you ever wanted or tried to write poetry but are afraid you are "not a poet"?

~ Do you have a "wounded poet" within you?

Cost: $40 per session

Description: Based on the teachings in Stephen Levine’s Becoming Kuan Yin: The Evolution of Compassion, the Medicine Poetry Circle guides participants through meditation and gentle body movement practices designed to bring us into our hearts, where, in the words of Kuan Yin, we can hear "the song we need to sing for ourselves that is at first more felt than heard."  From this place deep in the body, blossoming from the heart, poems that heal us emerge.  In the Medicine Poetry Circle, we will write poems, share poems, and taste the "strong medicine" of "the right word at the right time."

At the edge of our universe, where fear can harden the body and doubt can turn the heart to stone, we soften the belly so the song may rise. ~ Stephen Levine, Becoming Kuan Yin

Note: The Medicine Poetry Circle is being offered on three Saturdays: April 26, May 31, and June 28.  Participants may choose to attend any or all of the three Poetry Circles offered. Participants would be supported in the Circle by reading Stephen Levine’s Becoming Kuan Yin: The Evolution of Compassion prior to attending.
