Exploring Epiphany through Poetry and Poem-Making Weekend Retreat

March 15 @ 5:00 pm - March 17 @ 1:00 pm


This moment of surprising yourself with your own words, or of being surprised by the poems of others, is at the heart of poetry as epiphany.  This experience of creative insight helps you to recognize in yourself a deeper, more resonant voice that has been discouraged, hidden away, or perhaps is yet to be discovered or rediscovered!

Please join us in this weekend retreat, as we explore the breadth and depth of “epiphany” (which comes from the Greek “epiphaneia,” meaning “appearance” or “manifestation.”) It refers to revelations given by the gods.

Some questions that are part of our exploration: Could letting go of self-judgment deepen my practice of listening to what God wants me to discover?

Please register early to reserve your spot; the weekend retreat is limited to 22 participants.

Date & Time: Fri., March 15 at 5pm through Sun., March 17 at 1pm
Presenter: John Fox
Fee: $250 (all inclusive)
