Reading and Writing Abortion | Fall 2020
From 7 pm until 9 PM
In Annie Finch's Zoom Room
Facilitated by Annie with poet and psychologist Marianela Medrano
Through reading and discussion of the poems and stories in Choice Words, focused journaling, guided meditation, and deep sharing, we will aim to process the guilt, shame, confusion, and disempowerment perpetuated by the patriarchy into a self-compassionate reclamation of our full life-giving power. Our aim is to facilitate a connection between reading, writing, feelings and actions, moving from trauma to wellness through collaborative and empowering exchanges. Ultimately, our circle aims to attain a transformation beyond words, as we journey via meditation and ritual into the womb of the divine feminine to find the power within.
In addition to the three two-hour classes, tuition includes optional reading and writing assignments, additional access to the zoom room to continue the conversation informally between sessions, and exclusive admission to a private discussion area reserved for this group in Annie’s online Poets & Seekers Community.
There are 10 places available.
