Poetry is a prophetic vessel through which the truth of any moment may be tended and brought to the surface where it can inform those changes that are calling us to action. Come and savor four evenings with poets returning to Wisdom Ways. Each will engage in conversation about the place and importance of poetry in our time, share poems of their own and others that have inspired and spoken to them this past year, and answer participant questions. Their words will tend to our deepest longings and be a prophetic witness within our uncertain times.
