I have found no cure                     for the sick                                       but this crooked flower which only to look upon                     all men                                       are cured. This is that flower                     for which all men                                       sing secretly their hymns of praise. This                     is that sacred                                       flower! - from "The Yellow Flower," William Carlos Williams A new take on a Poets House tradition: An overnight of poetic and spiritual cleansing, with guided meditations and intuitive writing sessions, proprioceptive movement and acupuncture options, and other activities designed to clear and comfort the mind and body, and open up new space for creativity.
