Poems, Prayers & Possession with Gabrielle Calvocoressi
This class examines the way spiritual practice and the life of the mind (often one in the same) play themselves out in poems as old as the Song of Songs and as contemporary as the work we are doing today. Participants will do a close reading of the Song of Songs and consider what makes that poem so timeless. Guest speakers may visit to talk about their own journeys and practices.
Gabrielle Calvocoressi is the author of two books of poetry, The Last Time I Saw Amelia Earhart and Apocalyptic Swing, which was a finalist for the Los Angeles Times Book Award. She was a Stegner Fellow and Jones Lecturer at Stanford University.
