2-day intensive writing workshop with Jimmy Santiago Baca at the Mabel Dodge Luhan House  

in Taos, New Mexico, December 6-7, 2014

Poetry of Place & Spirit:

Making our Writing Time A Sacred Space.

We're going to delve into our place in life at the present through the lens of poetry. Place is not only physical, it can be those places that have held us back as poets, that have given us pain and joy and shaped and formed who we are. The places we enter sometimes keep us stuck in silence, and sometimes place has walls, has cells, keeps us in our prisons -- in essence, the poetry we'll be developing will free us to enjoy the sacred space of our selves in the world, seeing beauty in our present lives. 

 

It's easy to see why some of the greatest minds of the 20th century were inspired at the Mabel Dodge Luhan House. One can only imagine the tantalizing conversations that took place within these walls. Georgia O'Keeffe, D.H. Lawrence, Ansel Adams, Martha Graham, Carl Jung were among many of the notables in residence. As an historic inn and conference center offering artstic, literary, and personal growth workshops, the Mabel Dodge Luhan House continues to build on a very long history of personal, intellectual and artistic ferment.
