Saved by a Poem: The Transformative Power of Words

with Kim Rosen
Can someone really be saved by a poem?  Kim Rosen’s answer is a resounding “Yes!”   Poetry, our most ancient form of prayer, is especially needed in these times of global and personal uncertainty.  In fact, poetry’s popularity seems to be soaring in direct relationship to the growing instability of the world around us.  As financial and natural resources dwindle, many are turning to the resources of the heart.   A poem can be a nondenominational prayer, a companion through difficulty, and a doorway to an inner source of joy, peace and true wisdom.

 

Kim Rosen has touched listeners far and wide with poetry’s power to awaken, inspire, and heal. She speaks the poems of modern and ancient visionary poets to music in a way that “wakens and nourishes the soul” in the words of Thomas Moore, author of Care of the Soul. Kim offers a whole new approach to poetry, encouraging you to feel the poem as a healing medicine, which can bring every level of your being—body, mind, feelings, and soul—into alignment with what matters most to you.

 

 On Thursday, September 16, at Bloomsbury Bookstore, Rosen will giving a reading from her new book, Saved by a Poem: The Transformative Power of Words. The reading will be interwoven with inspirational poetry from around the world and is free.

 

On Friday, September 17, she will be giving a “Poetry Concert” at the Unitarian Church of spoken word mystical poetry interwoven with dynamic soundscapes that open the mind, melt the heart and set the body dancing.  Tickets are $12 in advance available at Music Coop, and $15 at the door.

 

On Saturday and Sunday, September 18-19, she will be offering a weekend workshop on the transformative power of poetry in Ashland.
