Writing from the Heart of Autumn: Poetry, Nature and the Spiritual Journey

Saturday, October 14, 2017 | 9:00am

In Celtic spirituality, poetry is considered an exhalation of experience and the language of spirituality. As we move deeper into the heart of autumn, enjoy a morning apart to explore the rhythm of spending time in nature and turning inward to reflect on its wisdom. Learn from the words and experiences of ancient Celtic poets and contemporary writers such as Mary Oliver and Jane Hirshfield in the context of the ancient Celtic practices of honoring the seasons. Engage your own experiences through simple writing exercises rooted in the autumn landscape of the Cathedral grounds and gardens.
