"Images, Poetry and the Spirit" is an invitation to allow soul stirring, visual images from photographs, magazines, paintings, sculptures, fabric, etc., to inspire individual and group poetry. Especially in these challenging times, calming and balancing our hearts and minds can help renew a sense of wholeness and joy. The Sufi Purification Breaths and a Sufi Dance are offered to warm up the body, heart and soul for the creation of poetry. In this workshop, we become creators by engaging our right and left brain with images and words in a creative process, which calms our nervous systems and breathes new life into our spirits. Everyone's poems are regarded as sacred ground and are treated with reverence. Please bring a selection of images, which have personal meaning and resonance as well as a digital or paper & pen means of recording poems. A display of photo poems are available as possible writing prompts on www.thetransformativearts.com/photopoems-exhibit
