The Mystic Poets
HOW CAN A POEM, WRITTEN IN THE 1300’S, BE RELEVANT TODAY? THROUGH EROTIC SYMBOLISM, HUMOUR, AND SPIRITUAL INSIGHT, THESE MYSTIC POETS GIVE US TOOLS TO FACE, THROUGH ART, THE TOOMUCHERY OF OUR BUSY LIVES.
Merle invites you to join her for two, life-changing hours to dip and bathe in the sweet essence of these enduring love songs.Let them be the finger that points to the moon.
WHEN KABIR SHOWS HOW A SIMPLE CLAY JUG HOLDS “ALL SEVEN OCEANS AND A HUNDRED MILLION STARS” YOU CAN TASTE THE ESSENTIAL NATURE OF THE TRUTH. It is said that a poet is one who hears God’s whisper and wakes up. Merle’s love of these poets has infused her life. She kneads Rumi into her sourdough loaves; she digs Hafiz into her cabbages; she sprinkles Kabir into her face cream and he rests in her wrinkles.
Merle has taught many workshops in Venice based on the greatest genius of all time. She invites you to explore the unknown parts of him - his creativity, writings and soul to allow his genius to spark your own curiosita and talents.
In this 2 hour, Self-Care Saturday, online workshop, she will take you into the maestro’s inner and outer universe in fun and stimulating ways. She will use writing techniques he used and exercises he used to stimulate ‘curiosita’.
His wisdom will guide you “Tie your course to a star”.
