Oracle in the Trees

O, Miami is hosting their annual festival in April!  The wide ranging events bring poetry to every corner of Miami, often in unique and unexpected ways. My contribution is a sensory forest walk designed to uncover secrets in both written and natural poetry! It will take place Saturday, April 21 at 10:00 AM.

Bibliomancy is the art of fortune telling practiced by interpreting randomly chosen passages from sacred texts. We’ll allow the fates to guide us while taking a leisurely stroll in the pine rocklands, an endangered ecosystem that is unique to south Florida.

Together we’ll explore the forest ecology while engaging in a series of sensory experiences focusing on relaxation, reflection, and the poetry of Hafez, a 14th century Persian mystic.

forest bathing in Miami

I’m now offering forest bathing experiences in Miami! Go to this link to sign up for dates available now through the end of the year:
https://www.airbnb.com/experiences/131014

I’ll be adding more dates and more locations in 2018. Forest bathing, also known as forest therapy or shinrin yoku, is a guided experience that helps people connect to nature. We’ll bathe our senses in the healing qualities of nature, share our observations, and end the walk with a short Q & A. We’ll leave refreshed by a contemplative practice that we can carry into our everyday routines.
