What we're about

What's life without art, poetry, and imagination? If you feel a bit chained to your job and need a creative relief, welcome. Discovery, learning, and expanding our imagination keep us moving forward. What better place than Los Angeles for discovery? Los Angeles has several remaining beat generation landmarks and live poetry cafes.

Poetry venues in LA: Spoken Funk, Tuesday Night Cafe, Greenway Court Theater, Da Poetry Lounge, Tribal Cafe, Tuesday Night Café Project, Beyond Baroque Foundation & Literary Arts Center, etc.

SPIRITUAL POETRY MEETUP ONLINE

Link visible for attendees

We meet online the third Saturday of every month from 4:00-6:00pm to read and discuss spiritual poetry and wisdom quotes, and to share thoughts, feelings and insights inspired by the readings. About 25 people attend from several groups - we'd love to hear from you what poem or quote is meaningful to you - Do you love Rumi, Rilke, Joy Harjo, Hafiz, Mary Oliver, Alice Walker, Ryokan, Thomas Merton, Mirabai, Pablo Neruda, Hildegard of Bingen, Wendell Berry, Nâzım Hikmet, Thich Nhat Hanh or...? Every meetup is different, depending on what you choose to read and discuss. Let's learn from each other as we share these invitations to what is higher and deeper.

We draw strength, support, and inspiration from poetry and wisdom traditions. All paths and views are welcome -- this is an open and welcoming space where we get to know others who share a love for spiritual poetry and wisdom quotes, and for that which connects us with a deeper life, regardless of spiritual path or personal history.

NOTE: RSVPs close two hours before the meetup begins, so please make sure to RSVP in advance! You must be logged in on Zoom to join the meeting, and a password is required. The password will be sent by direct message or email as we get closer to the date. Please check your Meetup account for messages! (There will also be an email, but Meetup.com messages appear much sooner than the emails - sometimes Meetup's emails get bottle-necked so it's always better to check your Meetup.com account - or better yet, RSVP early!)

Take-Home Poetry Packs are available for free download at https://intrinsicheart.com under the "Poetry & More" tab. (These are a gift for enjoyment, not a prescription for readings!) To see lists of readings from past Spiritual Poetry Meetups, go to https://intrinsicheart.com/category/poetry/spiritual-poetry-meetup-readings/.

We hope you can join us!
