March 25 - "Listening for the Voice of Love": A Meditation with Poetry at Washington National Cathedral






I will be offering a guided meditation as part of the Cathedral Crossroads program.  You can see the full schedule for the evening here   My part of the program runs from 7:30-8:30 and is called "Listening for the Voice of Love: Poetry for Lent" . Here's the description:  
Many of us find that the practice  of reading and even writing poetry is something we want to “take on” for the season of Lent. Come and listen to the voices of poets who have used language to invite deeper attention to our lives, what we are grateful for, what we regret, what needs to be opened up to healing and blessing. Experience how poetry can invite us into a place of prayer, sometimes reassuring, sometimes challenging, but a place where we can be open to the Holy One who is always seeking us out in love.

Poetry, Prayer, Gratitude and Blessings

POETRY, PRAYER, GRATITUDE AND BLESSINGS
 Kathy Staudt, Kathleen Glaser and Michael S. Glaser
Oct. 22-24, 2013

This conference will examine the confluence of these two rivers – poetry and prayer, and how, both individually and together, they can open channels for gratitude and blessings. We will both read and write poetry, practice being present to one another and to the world, and explore ways that poetry and prayer together can enrich and deepen our humanness and our ability to listen, be present and compassionately serve.
Cost $400 includes double occupancy room, board and tuition.
