Workshop Overview

When trouble comes in the human world, there may be a little story from the wild that can offer consolation. From the Gnomic Verses in Old English, to the Tao Te Ching, and the writings of Wordsworth, Emily Dickinson, and Mary Oliver, we have cherished lyric remedies speaking the language of Earth for human comfort. In this workshop, we will harvest close observations from the Sitka landscape and compose an archive of consolations for use as our need comes.
