Spring & Summer 2019

"The Poetry of Trees: Breath & Creation"

Dates:  July 1 - July 4, 2019

Chautauqua Institution of New York

  “Trees are poems the earth writes upon the sky” Kahlil Gibran.  We will use the practice of meditation and breath-work to connect with nature to ground ourselves in the beauty and language of trees.  We will then use this inspiring connection in the creative process of writing poetry about trees that have been a part of our lives both in the past as well as the present.  Come create poetry with the trees of Chautauqua!
