Exploring Human Experience through Poetry: Compassion

Please join us for another evening of poetry and discussion. This month we will consider how poets elicit compassion and empathy through their words. Are these essentially emotional responses or do poets help us think critically about our connections to other beings? Photographs have been especially effective at eliciting compassion. Can poetry do the same?

We will read and discuss specially selected poetry. All participants are welcome to bring their own favorite find on the topic, although it is not required. If you do bring a poem (or two), please make copies to share with the group. Light refreshments will be served. Facilitated by Audrey Kingstrom.

Join or login to comment.

    I like the subject, compassion. It's an important topic and one that lends itself to some beautiful poetry.

    Darn! Everything is happening on the 30th. There is a big summit of the 350.org national group, "Do The Math" that is happening at the same time which I have been planning on attending for some time.
