Master Class: Crafting Dreams into Poetry with Cathy Smith Bowers

100.00

In this workshop we will discuss and demonstrate how crafting our dreams into poetry can help facilitate spiritual, intellectual, and emotional growth. In doing so we will take a close look at how some of our most revered poets and spiritual teachers have used both free verse and fixed forms for bringing the unconscious offerings of dreams into consciousness. Everyone will leave this workshop with the beginnings of a sonnet, villanelle, pantoum, and/or sestina inspired and informed by a dream.
