Meeting on Fridays at noon via Zoom, the Contemplative Reading Group is reading Joy Harjo’s poetry collection, Conflict Resolution for Holy Beings. Harjo is the first Native American Poet Laureate of the U.S. You can find the first poem in this collection here: https://poets.org/poem/calling-spirit-back-wandering-earth-its-human-feet.
Format: Half-hour socializing followed by reading in the lectio divina style.
We read one poem three times aloud out of the silence & share what calls to us out of that reading. This is NOT a discussion group. We try not to talk *to* each other or *about* the text, but instead share what rises in us from our spiritual depths in response to the text.
Contact Rob Pierson with questions:
