Poetry consists of words and phrases and sentences that emerge like something coming out of water. They emerge before us, and they call up something in us. But then they turn us back into our own silence. – Marilyn Nelson
Join published poet, singer, scholar, and mother, Jennifer Bloom, as she invites us to use poetry as a lens for personal reflection on what has unfolded so far this year and how we want to move into the second half. Jennifer will share her own poetry and nuggets from neuroscience as catalysts for contemplation through writing and conversation. Bring your favorite journal and pen if you'd like.
Location: Seton Cove
(Includes lunch. Pre-registration required)
