ONLINE: Kim Rosen: The Virtual Poetry Dive, with Music, Movement, Writing and Sharing

Poetry is the language of intimacy with self and others. It can invite us to strip our masks and give naked voice to what is deepest within us. Hearing and/or speaking it aloud can literally change brain chemistry and thus dissolve painful patterns of thought, feeling, and physiology, aligning us with what is innocent, intimate, and holy within. This invariably ripples out to touch and transform the world around us.

This adventure is an immersion in poems, music, movement and silence designed to liberate the flow of our feelings and free our unique expression — through written words, voice, body and/or silence. In a circle committed to authenticity, risk-taking and self-honesty, inhibitions fall and all aspects of being, from the darkest to the brightest, are welcomed.

Kim has innovated unique techniques of working with the Zoom video platform that allows for a lush immersion in music, poetry, movement, and connection. This is not 2.5 hours entrained to your device. It is an inner journey that will intentionally disrupt your ‘screen time’ because the primary focus is deep listening within.

Join us for this adventure into the unexpected intimacy, connection and authenticity possible through the miracle of Zoom in alchemy with music, the poetry of the inner life, dancing, writing, sharing — all held in a strong vessel ceremony and shared intention…

From a participant: “This is one of the best experiences I ever had. It was such a gift to be free to be immersed so deeply in sound, the sound of your voice, the upwelling of the music. It was one of the most completely immersive all-encompassing few hours. Fishes and loaves all in one, sustaining. In many ways this moment in time has brought blessings I never expected to receive again because of the difficulty of travel and the limitations of sound and sight age has brought me. But they were overcome this glorious afternoon.”

Here are some more details: The workshop begins with a meditation and opening ceremony. This is followed by a “Poetry Dive” which is a form Kim has created that moves from movement to an immersion in poems spoken by Kim with powerful music, designed to allow you to lie back in the shamanic medicine of word and rhythm and allow your inner life to rise to the surface. The experience continues with spontaneous writing. This is followed by optional sharing in the group.

At times we invite the involuntary — beyond the mind — to move us in many ways – through body movement, as well as through the inner movements of feeling, thought and awareness. In this context poems offer a medicine to unlock ordinary patterns of thought and melt the veils between the worlds, dissolving self-consciousness and giving each a taste of her/his most authentic self.

All are welcome. No prior experience with poetry is necessary.

There will be a 10 minute “go outside and breathe” break in the middle of the program.

Note about what this is not: This is not 3.5 hours entrained to your device. It is primarily an audio journey, that will intentionally disrupt your ‘screentime', because the primary focus is deep listening within.
