Poetry Mornings at Centering Space
Join Kim at Centering Space for reflection and discovery.
Welcome to Word SPA - Spirituality, Poetry, Appreciation
WordSPA is a ministry of personal expansion through the spiritual catalyst of poetry, entering into the sacred moment in a spirit of fun, of hope, and of gratitude for what is, the daily grind and the sacred moment. We believe with Mary Oliver, that “Poetry is a life-cherishing force. For poems are not words, after all, but fires for the cold, ropes let down to the lost, something as necessary as bread in the pockets of the hungry.” Whether you want to learn to lead Spiritual Poetry Circles, or you'd like to bring Kim in to lead an experience for your group, this is a place for both diving deep and resting awhile.
