“This is why we write, why we create. Because expression is like sunlight that emanates from within. It causes the soul to blossom in time.” ~ Mark Nepo
For this quiet day we will use poet and philosopher, Mark Nepo’s new book, Drinking from the River of Light: the Life of Expression, as our guide to the transformative power of our creative force. The day will include time for meditation, walking in nature, writing as a spiritual practice and an exploration of what it means to see, all within the container of silence. Please join me for this day, dedicated to giving time, space and practice to the creative force restive within you.
