Poetry Depths Mystery School
Personal and Professional Development
North American School - January to June, 2014
Irish School – February to July, 2014
This program is a multi-faceted immersion in the power of poetry, with the understanding that the poems we love reflect to us the voice of our soul, and as we embody them more and more deeply we discover and reveal more and more of our true nature — to ourselves and those around us. This naturally overflows to serve others: as we meet and befriend our own depths, voice, body, nakedness, dissolution and creation, we can invite, hold and support others to unfold, to “dive” in their unique ways. There is a natural pendulation between personal, direct experience and reflection on that experience from a service perspective.
The form of year one will be the following:
- Two residential retreats: a five day retreat at the beginning of the course and a four day retreat at the end. See dates below
- a monthly group phone call – 2 hours
- monthly homework and an optional online forum for posting homework and other communications (The “Temple Wall”)
- optional phone, Skype or in-person work with a partner, and/or with small groups
- two private Skype meetings with Kim
- a day-long virtual retreat through conference calls, Skype partner sessions and guided solo inquiry, to be scheduled in March or April.
