We will read and discuss various Transformational Poems that Resonate and bring us to “Wonder, Mystery and Oneness”. Among the poets we will explore are: Mary Oliver, Rumi, Ryokan, Li Po, Rilke, Basho, Antonia Machado, Hafiz, Lao Tzu, Chuang Tzu and many others.

You may bring your own poems (please make copies if you can – about 20 is a good number). The more poems we have, the richer the experience will be.

“The birds have vanished into the sky,
And the last clouds have drained away.
We sit together, the Mountain and me,
Until only the Mountain remains.” Li Po[masked] (Chinese Poet)
