Writing a Healing Poem

with JC Wayne

Wednesday, October 28, 5:00-7:00pm EDT

Art-inspired poetry can soothe our fatigued spirits in a tumultuous and uncertain world. Taking inspiration from "Adirondack Chairs" by Gallery 46 artist, Sarah Yeoman, poet JC Wayne will guide us through exploring what a "healing poem" is, examples of healing poems and writing one as a source of personal peace and refuge. As part of the process, we will tour some simple ways of tapping into our own inner capacity for well-being and creativity. And there's a special bonus: Sarah will be at the workshop to share the experience of her inspiration and creative process for her piece and answer participant questions.
