Mindful Poetry Moments presents the Poetics of Pride. This special hybrid event will bring together LGBTQ+ individuals to listen, contemplate and respond to a Mindful Poetry selection through a queer lens. In the hour, we will meditate to open, listen to the selected poem, have a visiting artist/poet speak to the poem and then prompt us to write for 12 minutes and share before closing the hour with another read of the first, inspiring poem. Poems written during the gathering have the opportunity to be included in our third Mindful Poetry book.

Mindful Poetry Moments, a collaboration between The Well and The On Being Project, offers a chance to pause and reflect on poetry’s ability to encounter ourselves, the world, and the mystery of each other. Now in our third year, we will gather once a month to listen, contemplate and reflect on selected poems from On Being's Poetry Unbound Podcast.
