Sleep That Sacred Flower: A Healing Retreat at Poets House

May 3, 2014 | 8:00 pm - May 4, 2014 | 9:00 am

Insomnia by Julie Paschkis

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
– 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. Treat yourself to relaxed inspiration, led by poet and certified hypnotherapist Kristin Prevallet, yoga and mindful movement teacher Romona Mukherjee, and licensed acupuncturist and holistic healer Mona Chopra, in the context of our 60,000 volume library.
