Poetry, Music and Labyrinth Walk Do you love listening to poetry spoken aloud, with music and walking, moving your body through the ancient configuration of the labyrinth's sacred geometry? The Ottawa Poetry Bards hosts three seasonally themed evenings this winter into spring, at St Luke's Anglican Church.
Tuesday, February 19 - Mystery of Love
Tuesday, March 19th - Stirrings and Awakenings
Tuesday, April 16th - Resurrection of Pleasure
Evenings from 6:30-8:30 p.m.
Facilitated by The Ottawa Poetry Bards - Anne Wright Jan Falls, Mary Lou van Schaik and Madeline Dietrich
We have been working and playing together with poetry for a number of years now. We are all students of Kim Rosen of Saved by a Poem - Poetry as Medicine for the Soul. Each in our unique way, we weave poetry into our professional lives as coaches, therapists, spiritual teachers, and creativity mentors.
We love to share our love of poetry spoken to music, and combining that with walking the labrythn just seems like a bit of heaven on earth. These evenings are balm for the soul, spiritual nourishment in the middle of our fast paced lives; a moment in time to slow down, go inside, and be in sacred space with the quiet companionship of others.
Admission is by donation (suggested fee $25.) but all are welcome, whatever you can pay. All proceeds from the evenings go to St.Lukes Anglican Church and Match International - Women’s Programs. Pay at the door or through Eventbrite.
“As I step into the classroom with Madeline, I am aware of a spaciousness that few other facilitators offer, giving adequate time for self-reflection and digestion of the material. The spaciousness is well-supported by experiential learning and practical teachings. Madeline’s work—both within her own life and in facilitating others—speaks clearly through the profound space she holds for learning, and healing, to happen.”
