ONLINE: Soul Songs – Exploring Devotional Poetry

April 10, 2021 @ 10:30 am 12:30 pm PDT

Saturday, April 10, 10:30a – 12:30p, on Zoom, $15.

Poetess and creative writer Aditi Muir offers this inspired class for the inner poet: no experience or prior reading required!

Have you ever read a poem that made your heart sing and wondered how they did it? Together we will explore the greats of devotional poetry: Rumi, Hafiz, Omar Khayyam, St. Theresa of Avila, Saint John of the Cross, John Donne, Jane Hirschfield, Mary Oliver, Paramhansa Yogananda and others. 

We will read poems in class, discuss the various approaches used by these poets, have short periods of meditation and will crescendo by working on our own devotional poems!
