POETRY AS A TOOL FOR WELLNESS
Inspired by the Institute for Poetic Medicine, the National Association for Poetry Therapy, and the Why We Rise Movement...this portal page is devoted to maintaining a safe-space for Art and Poetry Community members and workshop Attendees to share and access each other's works...for personal healing and creative exchange purposes.
Granted, there are a multitude of social media platforms and opportunities to post one's poetry for the world to see. However, there are also those more private, close-knit events where people only want to share their personal thoughts, stories, and feelings solely with the individuals who participated in the event that they attended.
This space is a place where they can do just that!
Personal invitation and password access is required.
Responding to Shockwaves July 8-10, 2022
Presented by John Fox, this 3-day retreat was the first in-person poetry gathering for this group in over 2 years.
In our own space...at our own pace.
In the United States, the month of May is Mental Health Awareness Month...with loads of immersive art exhibits, discussion panels, and sponsored creative activities going on all month long.
In the Metaverse, we keep the creative therapy vibe going...all year long!
Not everyone can make it out to the live events and Inworld gatherings, so this is one of our online spots to catch up and carry on
in our own space...at our own pace.
