Blessings, Dedications, and Songs of Awakening: The Everyday Poetry of the Spiritual Life

Language describes, informs and connects. Some language opens us up, beckoning us beyond reason, into the ordinary wonder of life. Our Spiritual Life includes our everyday language.  How do we talk to others and to ourselves in trust, understanding and love? Does the language we use encourage investigation and connection?

We are always expressing something. Give voice to your radiance, through blessings, dedications and songs of your continual awakening. And share them with the Sangha.

There will be weekly prompts and the ability to share poems on our website blog, as well as on the bulletin boards at Heart of Wisdom and Great Vow.

April 1st to the 30th:  Online poetry extravaganza with games, poetry slams, perhaps a poetry box hike, and at least two dharma talks. Come to play and learn!

Led by Amy Kisei Costenbader and Cibyl Kavan.



There is no charge for this event.
