Bread for the Journey: A Celebration of Poetry and the Human Spirit
is designed to embrace the power of both poetry and place as it focuses on the unique and special ways poetry has long served the hungers of the human heart for community and for sharing the rich and joyful news that poetry can bring.
About the 2013 Bread for the Journey retreat participants have said:
“The Quality of the guest speakers and workshops cultivated the emotional and intellectual food we lived off of beyond the days spent there . . . . Our time felt sacred.” DN
“ A most renewing and inspiring experience.” LLK
“Even though I didn’t know exactly what I was looking for, it was exactly what I was looking for.” MKB
“I came to understand that poetry matters and is a powerful force for making our world saner, kinder, richer and possibily7 worth risking everything to save.” KS

New leadership is needed for new times, but it will not come from finding more wily ways to manipulate the external world. It will come as we who serve and teach and lead find the courage to take an inner journey toward both our shadows and our light—a journey that, faithfully pursued, will take us beyond ourselves to become healers of a wounded world.
There is in us an instinct for newness, for renewal, for a liberation of creative power. We seek to awaken in ourselves a force which really changes our lives from within. And yet the same instinct tells us that this change is a recovery of that which is deepest, most original, most personal in ourselves.
