Poetry of the Goddess

  • The Sacred Well 536 Grand Avenue Oakland, CA, 94610 United States (map)

with Monica Mody 

Wed • 21 Sept
7.00p ~ 8.00p

FREE • donations gratefully accepted

Poetry is the language of creation. Poetry is alternate reality. Through poetry, what may not be spoken in the profane realm may be uttered, and the lines of energy redrawn. Inviting the goddess of creation in our midst - and her languages of emotion, sound, image, and metaphor - this evening will be dedicated to nourishing our embodied selves through the nutriment of words. Join Monica Mody as she shares poetry to honor the deep soul that wells within each of us. 

Monica Mody is a poet, diviner, and cultural theorist. She holds an MFA in Creative Writing from the University of Notre Dame and is completing her Ph.D. in East-West Psychology at the California Institute of Integral Studies. She has trained in West African Dagara ways with elder Malidoma Somé from Burkina Faso, as well as with medicine people from many other borderlands traditions. Her first book of cross-genre poetry, KALA PANI, is available from 1913 Press. Monica is online at | |
