Poetry Depths Mystery School
Personal and Professional Development
January to June, 2014
This program is a multi-faceted immersion in the power of poetry, with the understanding that the poems we love speak 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 others. 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:
~ a five day residential retreat January 10 – 15, 2014 at Earthrise Retreat Center, Petaluma, California, U.S.A.
~ 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 me
~ a day-long virtual retreat through conference calls, Skype partner sessions and guided solo inquiry, to be scheduled in March or April.
~ a four-day residential retreat at the end of the course to be held in Ireland, the UK or Canada (depending on where the majority of students are located).
Cost: $1695. course tuition. This does not include food and lodging for in-person workshops at beginning and end of course, which runs about $150/day for double occupancy for the first retreat ($750) and somewhat less than that for the second retreat.
