Sedona AZ (January 31, 2014) – Tapping into everyone’s wish for peace, the last workshop of Sedona World Peace Dance Celebration Week will turn to poetry for a final expression of personal involvement.
“Poets and Peace — Readings and Workshop” will feature the talents of 15 local poets to share their own work and then assist attendees to write their own commitments to peace through poetry. Working with published poets, attendees will receive personal attention and guidance as they find their own ways of relating to peace.
According to co-facilitators Barbara Mayer and Janice Carter, “This workshop is the last of 22 free workshops beginning February 2, so it’s the final time for peace week participants to celebrate their own ways of weaving peace into their own lives. Poetry has a magical way of opening an individual to deeper levels of awareness.”
Well-known Sedona poet and workshop presenter Gary Every echoes the importance of poetry to express the deeper levels of personal commitment to peace and other qualities. “I started writing poetry hoping it would make me rich and famous,” he states. “Instead, all it did was make me a better human being!”
Other participating poets include Mary Heybourne, Louise McDonald, Marianna Warner, Janice Carter, Jewels Maloney, Liberty and Marc Lincoln, Annie Rivers, Sharron Porter, Penny Genter, Spring and John Bright, Liam Ward, Nadine Lalich, Chis Riley and Tony Carito.
Poems written during this free participation workshop will be on display at the Sedona Performing Arts Center that evening at 7PM when the first Sedona World Peace Dance and Concert will be held.
The Poets and Peace workshop will be held Feb. 7 from 1 – 3PM at the Sedona Meditation Center, 340 Jordan Rd, Sedona. To register contact Barbara Litrell, 649-0135 or firstname.lastname@example.org
