At the Bend in the River: A Three-Day Poetic Medicine Workshop with John Fox

A Place for Gathering, Listening, Paying Attention, Slowing Down and Silence
~
Friday Evening, 7:00-9:30 pm
Saturday, 10:00 am-5:00 pm
Sunday 9:30 am-12:30 pm

At the Bend in the River is a place of gathering and flow, community and creativity, a fresh shift in perception anda turning place: a surprise felt in the current. We approach all of these through the process of poem-making.

Over the course of this retreat we will:

  • slow down, even allow for stillness, listen to our own flow 
  • place value on silence, in silence, hold silence as much as possible
  • open to and connect with the poem and the person making the poem 
  • write as much as possible, without rush, feeling the river bend

No previous experience with writing is necessary.
