Rotunda Contemplative Practice Series S2019 - Open-Hearted Reading: Creative Process and Poetry
Location: Rotunda Multipurpose Room
When we read contemplatively, we explore our deeply held values so that we can experience compassionate engagement with the Other—be it a text, person, situation, or idea. In this workshop, we will adopt a contemplative approach to poetry to provoke our own creative processes. We will explore how critical, creative, and contemplative processes work together to inspire ethical action.
