A Poetry Dive is an immersion in poems, music, movement and silence designed to take you beneath the surface and liberate the flow of your feelings and free your unique expression — through words, voice, body, sound and silence.
There are messages hidden inside poems that become alive to you as you hear, speak and take them into yourself. Through this immersion, we begin to discover and reveal more and more of our true nature.
You don't need to be a poet, or even a lover of poetry to attend this workshop.
Inspired by the work of Kim Rosen (author Saved by a Poem) and many amazing poets, I invite you to dive with me and others as we journey together towards this path of self-discovery and awakening.
Glimpse by Chase Twitchell
It was as if a window suddenly blew open
and the sky outside the mind came flooding in.
My childhood shriveled to a close,
just like that, thread of smoke
that rose and touched a cloud - or the cloud’s
replica adrift on the slow river of thinking -
and disappeared inside it. In that dark water,
a new lily was opening, sky- white out of the muck.
It was only a glimpse, quick,
like a bird ruffling,
but I saw the flower’s
beautiful stark shape, an artichoke
brightened from within by the moon.
A path lay shadowy under my feet,
and I followed it.
