Multi / A Poetic Pause
Fri 3:00pm - 3:50pm
Venue: Make Believe
Type of Experience: Art
Content Type: Mindful Poetry Workshop
Poetry as many art forms, demands that we come in contact with ourselves in a way that is not accessible during everyday activities. Poetry calls one to be still and harness the emotions that fuel and resonate within us. A Poetic Pause will be a blend of mindfulness and poetry which will allow participants to become present with current emotions before materializing what they are experiencing into words. The class will begin with a brief introduction to poetry and different poetic styles. Then into a 10 -minute mindfulness practice to ground participants spiritually and mentally before writing. The remainder of the class will be dedicated to writing and sharing poetry with one another.
