About the event

Facilitated by E.D. Watson, PPM and Lisha Garcia, PPM

April 10, 17

When our lives and news feeds are marked by war, environmental catastrophes, and other distressing events, it can feel difficult or inappropriate to cultivate joy. However, this practice is vital to our health and long-term resilience. This series invites participants to notice, through poetry, life's simple joys. Participants can expect camaraderie with others, and to complete the course having written 6-8 new poems. No previous experience required.


"I have always been intimidated by poetry, but the Leaning Into Joy Poetic Medicine workshop was a true joy to be part of.  I not only enjoyed exploring poetry with E.D. and Lisha, but gained confidence that maybe I could write it too. I appreciate the space that they created, and the workshop was well organized and facilitated.  Thank you.” –V.C.

Please join us for a poetically joy-filled experience. All are welcome.
