The Ancient Greek word poiesis derives etymologically from the term that means “to make.” As the root of our modern word “poetry,” this active verb implies a person who transforms and continues the world through the act of making something mindfully. In this four-hour workshop, we will explore the connection between two ancient practices: meditation and making poems. As such, we will practice brief meditations and undertake generative writing activities.
