Indra's Net: Celebrating Weaves of Poetry

7:30 to 9:30PM

Indra's Net:
of Poetry


Ambika Talwar

“Both poetry and holistic practices work beautifully together, for language is intricately coded in us. In resonance with our authentic self, we experience wholeness & wellness.” – Ambika

The evening will begin with a reading of some poems, followed by a sharing and intimate conversation about your poetic/creative process and understanding of poetry as a refining of vision.

Following this, we will participate/create in weaving together new poems in the moment; these creations will be about your vision of new life unfolding. Time permitting, we may add a visual component.

The evening will end in group sharing of poems composed here. Who knows how the creative spirit moves us: we might make a big drawing with text for the New Year, new time, new visions.

If you question your poetic abilities, be surprised. Be astonished. Imagine! You are a part of this immense weave–a vision unfolding.

*Please bring notebook, pen, and crayons/color pencils.

*Books available for sale: "Creative Resonance: Poetry—Elegant Play, Elegant Change" and "4 Stars" and "25 Roses". Each $20 or Buy 2 for $30.

Donation: $22 but $20 will do
or $11 but $10 is step to heaven

Housekeeping Notes from Host Location, The GATEWAY:

* Thank you for honoring No Food or Eating or Drinks other than water in containers with lids inside the offices or workshop space of The GATEWAY.
* Cell phones silenced as you enter The GATEWAY Quiet Zones please. Thank you.
* The GATEWAY Portal practices and asks you, its attendees to join us in upholding a no perfume policy as possible. We also practice and ask all to adhere to a no candle and no incense burning policy for those sensitive to synthetic smells as well as for lessening our harmful carbon footprint impact on the environment. Please note that practitioners are permitted to burn a naturally sun dried herb called sage to clean the space energetically. & lastly where candles are part of a sacred ritual, safe, non-scented candles are permitted to be burned upon expressed consent by GATEWAY's operating director. If you have any further questions on this issue, please do not hesitate to contact us. Thank you.
* Also, in as much as we LOVE animals outside humans, no animals other than humans are permitted inside The GATEWAY. Blessedly this does not eliminate our Practitioners here at GATEWAY from being able to do work on them, as often they work remotely and/or with photos or props. We thank the universe for Quantum on that. Where necessary, the Practitioner may set up chairs and a portable divider to makeshift a little private area outside near our patio to do hands on work with animals. Thank you so much for your understanding and co-operation.
