December Riverwood Poetry Series


The Riverwood Poetry Series at Real Art Ways continues with an interactive workshop led by Nadia Colburn.

Join us on the second Tuesday of the month, from September 2018 through May 2019.

In a world so out of alignment, poetry can help us come back to our center, speak the truth and expand our perspective. In this workshop we’ll look closely at poems from different spiritual traditions (Rumi, Hopkins, Oliver, Gay). We’ll discuss poetry as a contemplative practice. We’ll meditate, write poetry and share our work.
