Women’s Meditative Poetry Circle

Do you need more poetry in your life? UCV women in collaboration with the Canadian U*U Women’s Association started  to offer a women’s meditative poetry gathering three times per week on zoom.

  • Mondays at 4 pm Pacific/ 7 pm Eastern
  • Saturdays and Sundays at 9 am Pacific/12 noon Eastern

Mary Bennett started this following Rev. Lara’s “Lectio Divina” series in October. Mary’s objective is to make her mornings go better and read more poetry. Both are almost lifelong goals worth revisiting regularly and it’s working.
You are invited if you identify as a woman or are non-binary, gender queer or gender fluid. I/we invite suggestions how to ensure this is a welcoming space for you.
The facilitator will:
  • Light a chalice and welcome people. Ask everyone to mute themselves.
  • Read a poem written by a Canadian (usually) woman (almost always) 3 times with a pause between.
  • Participants will listen during the first reading for words or phrases that strike them.
  • Second reading, listen for feelings or memories that are stirred.
  • Third reading, listen for a message or personal meaning.
  • We usually have about a minute’s of silence after each reading and then, as we’re usually a small group of 3 or 4, everyone shares briefly. We’re always finished within half an hour.

We have an email group. If you want to e-meet the other group members and receive occasional reminders or links to poetry, please join by sending an email to womens-meditative-poetry+subscribe@googlegroups.com 

We also have a slack workspace where those choosing poetry often add poems and links.
