PROGRAM



 



 



Title:  COMING HOME TO YOURSELF
           (2-hour session)



 



Greetings and introductions



 



Goal: To access experiences inside of ourselves that can be vividly
described.



           All writing levels
welcome



 



A 5-minute
mediation begins our practice and then a discussion of the 4 basic elements for
a good life or poem, or work of art: that we have a thinking part,
a feeling part, senses (sensual), and intuition.
We discuss these meanings.



 



The writing session
brings people within themselves by going through the floors of their lives
(each floor a different year) in an elevator. This takes personal mediation and
silence to obtain a story from one of the "Floors."



 



Our writers leave
the area to be alone to write what they saw on their "floor." They
return in 15 minutes having written from margin to margin just as they
"saw" it. Writers share the floor they are on and tell, if they wish.
The writers stay with their prose narrative; and we then discuss how it
becomes a poem.



 



Writers also can finish the
sentences:  I wish    I wonder    I
dream    I am afraid  
etc. 



 



The writers may be given 10 words that have no
connection, and they connect them into poems and stories like stringing beads.



 



After this outside
work may be brought in for sharing. However, participants must xerox copies of
poems to be discussed for each member ahead of time.
