Haiku, short poems that originated in Japan, help us celebrate the extraordinary in the ordinary. Paying attention to the “haiku moments” in our lives can help us access our awe and wonder in the world. Writing haiku can become a practice of gratitude. Join award-winning haiku poet and teacher Brad Bennett for an introduction to haiku and a chance to try your hand at writing a few. Join us for 3 sessions, first two will meet on Zoom, the third session will meet outside at the Healing Garden. Clients Only. Free Program with optional $10 donation. We encourage clients to commit to all three sessions.
