Painting with Words.
When we read a good poem, we can be forever changed by the poet's words that often reflect emotions we are also experiencing.  Using imagery, metaphor, and inner music, we'll read and write poems to free ourselves in processing experiences that throw us off balance.  What's personal is universal.  Included: u
pper-body gentle yoga to soothe anxiety and complex trauma.
Facilitated by Devora Weinapple, MFT, ATR-BC.  Co-facilitator: Jean Varda, a visionary Poet, author of She Was Attached to Symmetry (2014), Jean started four open mikes, taught poetry writing workshops, and was nominated for a Pushcart prize—all while raising two daughters and working as a hospice nurse.
