Spiritual Poetry Meetup

We will get together again Saturday January 11th to start off the new year, share spiritual poetry, and talk about what the poems mean to us.  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, 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.  We'll have light refreshments, and 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.)

Date & Time: Saturday, January 11th, 4:00pm


Location:  Acupuncture & Beyond

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.

    I cannot wait for the next meetup! Truly a delightful time to BE with others and gazing into their souls through the opening poetry provides.

    David Whyte, poet, has said, "The soul would raher fail at its life than suceed at someone else's.So far, corporate America is training us to live somone else's life." I love this because David reminds us how we yearn to be who WE are; not who somebody else wants us to be, not what the world of consumerism tells us what should bring us joy, but listening to our inner selves, paying attention to what delights us, inspires us, feeds our soul we fulfill our lives , our very being and know why we are here. and that knowing who we are is a gift to others as well as to ourselves. Thank you for inviting me to share my truth. I am inspired to know yours.
