Like a plant that grows out of bare ground, to express ourselves in poetry we must start from an empty place. We'll do a little meditation and reading from Zen and other sources to help us touch that place and then spring out to write our own poetry. Find your seat; find your voice.
The event is free but donations are appreciated. Everybody is welcome. An informal lunch together with JissoJi Zen practitioners is open to participants as well.
Please bring paper and something to write with.
