Finding Time to Listen
with Christian McEwen
August 15, 2020
Hosted by Hojin Sensei
And all the place
there was grew out of listening.
One of life’s great joys is finding time to listen — whether to a beloved friend or family member, to one’s own quiet interior self, or to the many voices of the non-human world: birdsong, wild wind, river’s sweep, and more. This day we will identify sources for the listener’s delight, and share ways to grow them into poems, letters, stories.
10am-3:30pm (lunch and listening break 12pm-1:30pm)
Your registration confirmation will include a link to the Zoom session.
Donations are appreciated to help support our efforts during this time.
