Food for Thought: Poetry Cafe

Friday, December 04

11:00am-12:00pm PDT

This is a digital event. You should receive information in your ticket or from the host about how to join online.

In this 60 min, free workshop, we use poetry and poem making to connect with ourselves and others during these challenging times. Join a supportive community to share what resonates with you.

Offered by Redwing Keyssar, RN, Author

Director of Patient and Caregiver Education

The MERI Center for Education in Palliative Care, UCSF/Mt Zion

In this one-hour, online “Poetry Café” we will access our creativity through the art of “poem-making.”

We will:

  • Listen to some poems read out loud and see how they make us feel
  • Use specific words or “prompts” to encourage our own “poem-making”
  • Create a safe environment in which to listen to each other
  • Allow poems to surprise us and guide our own healing journeys

In these challenging times, it is more important than ever to express our feelings and connect to our own creativity and community.

YOU DO NOT NEED TO BE A WRITER!

Sessions are offered every Friday from 11 am - 12 pm through 12/18/2020
