Spiritual Poetry Meetup
We will be meeting again the SECOND Saturday of November, on Saturday November 9th. I hope you can join us in Santa Monica to share the poems we choose, enjoy light refreshments, and talk about what the poems mean to us. At the October meetup we read poems by Denise Levertov, Rumi, William Stafford, Charles Kinglsey, William Carlos Williams and others -- I'm looking forward to what people choose next time! This 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. 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.)
(For titles of some of the poems we've shared in the past, see the comments for October 12 or other past spiritual poetry meetups.)
Date & Time: Saturday, November 9th, 4:00pm
849 11th Street, Santa Monica, CA 90403
(Between Idaho Avenue and Montana Avenue, on the east side of the street near the corner of Idaho & 11th)
P.S. We will also have people coming from the Santa Monica Spiritual Poetry Meetup -- and this is a co-ed event, so feel free to invite the men in your life as well.
