Event Description

Food for Thought: A Poetry Cafe Offered by Redwing Keyssar, RN, Author, Director of Patient and Caregiver Education at The MERI Center for Education in Palliative Care, UCSF/Mt Zion Fridays, 11:00 AM - 12:00 PM YOU DO NOT NEED TO BE A WRITER! In this one-hour “Poetry Café”, we will enter the realm of creativity through the art of “Poem-Making” We will: • Create a safe environment for each other-with a short guided meditation and music • Listen to some poems read out loud and see how they make us feel • Use some specific words or “prompts” to encourage our own “poem-making” • Share our poetic explorations In these challenging times, it is more important than ever to express our feelings and connect to our own creativity and community. Join us in using poetry writing as self-care and explore our feelings, fears, and hopes. “Poetry is simply speaking the truth. Each of us has a truth as unique as our own fingerprints” ~ Dr. Rachel Naomi Remen, from Intro to Poetic Medicine by John Fox Making poems can: • Surprise us • Allow expression of feelings in creative ways • Guide our own healing journey
