Program Details

Poetry Group - a Touch Dharmic


February 9 / 2:00 PM - February 9 / 4:00 PM

Involving the practices of Learning, Sharing and Awakening.  Our group activity is based on the book "Saved By A Poem: The Transformative Power of Words, by Kim Rosen.   This is open to everyone - knowledge of poetry is not required.  It is beneficial for each particpant to hold and have read the book in advance but it is not necessary. The first gatherings helped us to find our way - discussion on the merits of what we have learned from the first chapters and also about how to go about personally choosing a poem to practice. The wisdom of the book describes that the true power, the real genuine awakening, results from the verbal expression and sharing of a poem with others.  This is the practice we will be sharing.  Anyone is able to participate at any point. We will also begin anew in September starting with Chapter 1. Hope to hear you there.


Bring along a coffee. -  The kettle will be on for tea folk.


To be held Sundays at Shambhala, 120 LeMarchant Road.  Gatherings began Sunday Sept 8th and are held most Sundays from 2-4PM.  Some gatherings will be held outside over the summer...please contact Lewis to confirm the location.
