Event Details

"It's impossible to hate anyone whose story you know." -Jennifer Finney Boylan

How do we bridge the gap between self and other? The shortest distance between two people is a story. In this installment of the Bread & Poetry series, we will share our stories through a process called the Story Exchange. It is a way to inhabit another's story as if it were your own, creating connection, empathy and belonging. 

Come find out what all this means. Dissolve walls, disarm, borders, discover how the heart speaks when it has no defenses. 

About Bread & Poetry

"Poetry, like bread, is for everyone." -Roque Dalton

Bread & Poetry is a bimonthly series led by Elizabeth Marglin, who is a coauthor of Wild & Sacred Feminine Deck, and a poet. This program is for those interested in language, particularly poetry, as a doorway to something sacred inside themselves. Mixing experiential writing exercises with lively Q & A and a range of featured poets, Bread & Poetry serves up language that dissolves borders between self and Self; self and other. It is a way to hold space for a community of undefended hearts, each speaking a love language at once personal and universal. As the poet David Whyte says, “Poetry is language against which you have no defenses.”
