NEW PALTZ – The Ecstatic Spoken Word
- THE LIVING SEED
- 521 MAIN STREET, NEW PALTZ, NY United States
This workshop will consist of exploring different meditation and yogic approaches to inducing presence and creativity — we will then focus this presence into writing and listening to poetry. Through a series of juxtaposed meditation practices and writing periods, we will explore where our words take us with live musical accompaniment for sharing our poetry composed in class. We will also hear and dissect several poems by the great ecstatic poets (Rumi, Hafiz, Kabir, Mirabai, and others).
This workshop is open to those with any level of yoga or writing experience — beginners and advanced practitioners equally welcome.
Please wear comfortable clothes for movement/yoga practice, as well as bringing your favorite notebook, pen, and book(s) of poetry.
