Event Details

Sliding Scale: $45-$200. Our sliding scale options for this program include financial support for our teachers. Code PM1D22.

Please Note: This retreat is offered online only. We invite you to try this creative form of practice as we take care of one another and respond skillfully to COVID-19.

In this 21st offering of Poetry Day, our usual sitting and walking practices will be informed by periods of reading poetry to each other. Each poem is carefully selected by Phillip Moffitt with an eye toward selections that point us to dharma insights.

Poems of this nature comfort us and inspire us to take our meditation understandings into our daily life such that we see the world through dharma eyes and respond from the dharma heart. This is a day of fun and lightheartedness and if you haven’t ever read a poem in front of others, don’t miss this opportunity to free your voice and find a new form of expression.
