Caritas Healing Connections

We invite you to join us monthly for a chance to return to your Caritas Community to share and reconnect.

May 15, 2021 | Agenda & Theme


Theme: Getting to the Heart of Story: a reflective poetic practice

Presented by A. Lynne Wagner, EdD, MSN, RN, FACCE, Caritas Coach®, HMCT

Reflective practice is a healing modality that helps us explore our personal experiences and relationships. The aesthetic power of poetry expands our knowing of our connected humanity and discovery of personal meaning. Come and enjoy some practical and easy activities to understand poetry and explore poetry-making as part of getting to the essence of human stories (yours and others).

For our activities: Please have available some paper, pen and pencil (color pencils if you have them). Also please cut out two paper heart-shapes of about 4 inches diameter (color paper suggested, but not necessary!).

NOTE: Please allow for 90 minutes.
