Finding Time to Listen

with Christian McEwen

August 15, 2020

Hosted by Hojin Sensei

And all the place
       there was grew out of listening.
—Li Young-Lee

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.
