Transformative Narratives & Poetic Forms

March 16, 2021


Transformative Narratives & Poetic Forms
Poetry and poetic form is an effective and efficient way to capture, encapsulate, and express emotional and intuited content. This CoP experience introduces the marriage of active listening with poetic output via employing Haiku as a narrative tool. Participants will learn about the Haiku way of seeing and being and how this poetic form encourages paying attention as much as it does "telling about it.”
