03 The Pilgrimage of Poetry

with Anna Elkins

Richard R. Niebuhr said, «Pilgrims are poets who create by taking journeys.» This session will explore where poetry can take us by delving beneath our surface impressions to the underglimmers, the Spirit-aquifers, and the paths of the heart. It is there – deep into the interior roads – where we make pilgrimage to the sacred with our words.
