“Just sit there,

don't do a thing,

just rest.

For your separation

from the the sacred

and from love

are the hardest work

you ever do.”


~ Hafiz


In these bewildering times, both our inner and outer worlds are undergoing rapid change. So much is unknown. We may fear becoming overwhelmed or disconnected from the emotional, relational, creative, and spiritual resources we need most right now.


What if there is a dimension of experience always available right here, which is innately meaningful and vital - without cause or condition?

What if it's possible to simply awaken to receiving and transmitting this poetic dimension of being human?


We can tune and open ourselves to the living poetry of life – that which tenderizes the heart, soothes the mind, energizes the body, erupts in sudden laughter, and inspires compassionate action. When we do, we access the world’s innate aliveness, teeming with seen and unseen layers of intimacy, guidance, beauty, humor, and ever-present Awareness awake as it all.



  • Optional meditation instruction and sitting practice 30 minutes prior 
  • Spoken poems and teachings to bring themes alive in your experience
  • Writing prompts, guidance on technique and artistry, and time to explore through your own writing
  • Interpersonal exploration and time for connection in small groups and big group
  • Co-creation of robust relationships and intimate community through consistent creative and spiritual practice together

You will also be invited to join a private Mighty Networks online group for members of Awakening the Poetic, in which to share poems, share your own writing and receive feedback, and generally explore together what comes up in the workshops.
