Learning Unlimited: A Micro Retreat for Our Citizen Souls
Tue, September 10, 2019 1:00 pm - 3:30 pm
Can poetry help explain our politics? Yes, and it can also help provide a path forward as well. Given our fierce, distraction-filled world of social and political strife, we need new ways to refresh and restore ourselves. Join Dale Biron to explore how poetry can provide restful breaks for the mind, heart and soul that help us feel more centered, connected and sane. Throughout history great poems have provided uniquely imaginative and visionary maps for describing and restoring our social and political lives. Providing powerful ways to reimagine and re-enchant the higher angels of our citizen souls. Come hear the work of great poets like Oliver, Rilke, and Rumi, as we navigate the wild and furious waters of love, dissent, politics and more…
