THE POETRY OF MARY OLIVER AND OUR LIVES
In her poem “The Summer Day” Mary Oliver asks, “Tell me, what is it you plan to do with your one wild and precious life?”
Join us as we allow the poetry of Mary Oliver, whose work reflects a deep communion with the natural world, to inspire and guide us on this journey through the maze of modern life. In the time we have together, we will share both favorites and lesser known pieces and reflect on their meaning in our own lives.
Our facilitator will be Rev. Merry Shaver, who is on sabbatical from the Austin Center for Spiritual Living in Austin Texas, where she serves as assistant minister. Rev. Merry has a degree in Consciousness Studies and lives in the question.
Mary Oliver (1935-2019) is probably the modern poet whose words are read the most often at Unitarian Universalist services today. There are even three readings by her in our hymnal (Singing the Living Tradition).
The workshop will take place at a central location in Paris 6e.
