The Practice of Poetry: Writing for Self Care with Daje Morris

July 27, 2019 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm UTC+0

$25.00

Each participant will receive a pen and Moleskin, so you do not need to bring anything except your creative mind.

ABOUT THIS WORKSHOP:

Self-care is a buzz topic in the western world right now. Perhaps it’s because of our value for productivity, building wealth, and thriving in a fast-paced, media-heavy culture. Every day, we’re confronted with newer, wealthier, better, slimmer, and shinier ways of being. It can feel hard to keep up while remaining grounded and clear in ways that bring beauty to the earth, and not just productivity.

The first part of the Practice of Poetry series is about finding grounding by establishing a self-care practice through writing. We’ll evaluate the stories we tell ourselves about what it means to slow down and find peace in our process. We’ll put pen to the page and create a new narrative that re-establishes for ourselves what it means to feel enough.

ABOUT THE PRACTICE OF POETRY:

The Practice of Poetry is the practice of presence. It is a writing workshop and discussion series for those who’d like to use poetry to build a meditative wellness practice. This workshop is perfect for those who have stories to share that they can’t quite find the words for; those who want to establish a continuous, reflective writing practice, and those who have an interest in writing poetry, but feel shy about beginning.

ABOUT DAJE MORRIS:

Profound beauty is often found in tension. Through song and poetry, Daje makes it her mission to seek it out and expose it. As a performer, she pulls cues from favorites: Billie Holiday, Corinne Bailey Rae, serpentwithfeet, and Valerie June, permeating rooms with a vulnerable fusion of poetic rock and soulful ballad. In 2017, She self-published her first collection of poems, On Becoming Gold, in digital and print formats.
