Spiritual Poetry Meetup

We will get together Saturday February 8th at Acupuncture & Beyond in Westwood, to share spiritual poetry, light refreshments, and talk about what the poems mean to us.  The January meetup was one of the most powerful and heartfelt yet, and I am excited to see what February will bring!  This meetup is a relaxed and welcoming space to meet and get to know others who share a love for poetry and for that which connects us more deeply with spiritual life, whatever our spiritual path or personal history.  Our sharing allows us to get to know each other on a level beyond the surface, and it is wonderful to truly meet each other in this way.  Bring a book of poems or choose a poem from the many books we have on hand – you can read a poem, share copies of a poem, or just listen and chat – whatever feels comfortable.  Feel free to bring a small snack or finger food if you wish.  (P.S. For the poets among us, we are grateful to you for bringing your insights and heart-knowledge to our group, and for understanding that this is a place to share others' poems, not our own.)

By the way, if you'd like to see notes of some of the poems people have shared, check out the comments for past meetups.

Saturday, February 8th, 4:00pm


1700 Westwood Blvd., Los Angeles 90024

Acupuncture & Beyond is near the southeast corner of Westwood Blvd and Massachusetts Avenue.  There is free parking on nearby streets and in the adjacent lot.
