with Joe Grant
Tuesday, February 15, 7:00 - 8:30pm, via Zoom
We cannot save Earth.
We can let the land reclaim
and welcome us home. Joe Grant, Scratchings
All creation is crying out with an urgent appeal.
Join us for a reflective presentation including readings and insights from Joe Grant’s poetic writings that explore the re-wilding of our souls and re-grounding of our soles to restore our loving relationship with land.
Contemplating untamed wonders and spacious sky, poets, artists, mystics, and primal communities affirm nature as our native sanctuary, holy ground whereupon we commune with multiple mysterious and apparent dimensions of being. Here we find hermitage not in a remote ‘holy house’ or shelter, but in the wide-open that welcomes us home.
Registration: HERE or by calling 502-614-5616.
Cost on a Sliding Scale: $25, $35 or $45 – which includes a copy of Joe’s latest collection of poems and reflections, Scratchings. Your free copy can be available picked up at DGCEC or mailed to you for a small fee – please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
