March 6, 2020 - March 8, 2020

Poetry in the Woods has been CANCELED for this weekend. More details here.


Our annual Poetry in the Woods is an inspirational weekend with renowned poet, author, and speaker, David Whyte, on our Bainbridge Island campus. David guides participants in an exploration of how imagination and creative expression can awaken the courage to simplify, to act, and to have a life worth living at the center of our endeavors.


Our 8th annual Poetry in the Woods will be held on March 6 – 8, 2020.


What to Remember When Waking: Disciplines that Transform Everyday Life


Most of us have talents and qualities that live in isolation from the world, never finding a proper outlet or focus. This can lead to a sense of aimless, endless adaptation, rather than a growing feeling of belonging and generosity. There are ways of building this sense of belonging – disciplines that develop real maturity in a human being. It is important to recognize that what we look for is not untrammeled happiness, but an enlarging conversation that can encompass even the most harrowing losses. This conversation is not a Pollyanna search for a hidden key to happiness, but a profound ability to make ourselves large enough, brave enough and generous enough for the triumphs and profound difficulties needed to live even the most ordinary human life.
