Learning Unlimited: Poetry - Tool for Living
Tue, April 16, 2019 1:00 pm - 2:30 pm
Stalking The Wild And Captivating Poem
A captivating poem is a different animal. It provides unique access to our interior selves. It helps us reassess our perspectives and beliefs. It changes our minds and hearts. When it grabs us, we feel as if the poem were coming from inside our own body. Suddenly, we know things we did not know we knew. We make new vows. We see everyday objects and events in fresh new, ways. We develop new hungers, quests, and questions. Come to this talk to step out of your everyday world and gather new practical tools for living well. Come to be stopped in your tracks, your mind expanded, stretched and changed… your heart ever so slightly on fire.
