Haiku Retreat: "Honoring the Art of Detachment"
Offered by Tiferet Journal
This specialized workshop offers you a day to detach from the distractions and stresses of everyday life to relax, reflect, and write using the ancient and time-honored form of haiku. A range of instructional and hands-on activities will be presented.
Gather with like-minded creatives in a beautiful space set in the picturesque woods of Bernardsville, New Jersey.
- Learn about haiku, read haiku, and write haiku of your own.
- Learn about imagery and juxtaposition.
- Discover the inside of experiences through attention to the outside.
- Discover how writing haiku can inform and improve your longer poems.
- Translate human and natural world relationships into intensely focused written language that is life-affirming, spontaneous, and unpretentious.
$100.00 fee for the full day includes:
- all activities,
- a hard copy set of instructional materials,
- a nutritious lunch,
- a complimentary copy of Adele Kenny's new haiku collection, Not Asking what if.
