Zoom-Be the Poem ~ Freeing Your Authentic Self Through The Power Of Poetry
With Cecily Markham
September 19, 2020
Engaging poetic imagery, art, and contemplative readings, we will explore the radiance, depth, and joy of what it feels like, what it is – to be your authentic self.
Perhaps we have all experienced, at least once, the awe of being with another human being who is wholly genuine, true to themselves, and to others. These moments are often healing and unforgettably inspiring.
In our time together, participants are encouraged to bring a poem, story, or reflective reading – and share the wisdom of their experiences with authenticity.
“Be The Poem….be every word in the poem, the words are not meant only to be read, but words incarnate…stars…beings of light….be the space between the words, be the clear voice of poem calling between the river and the mountain and the light, oh river sparkling…oh river light…
Be the horse in the poem, running full gallop drinking wind…Be the horse who never stops running through my mother’s poems.” – excerpt from Be The Poem ~ Cecily Markham
