The Poetics of Contemplation with Joel McKerrow
Joel McKerrow – Writer – Poet – Speaker – Educator – Creativity Specialist – Artist Ambassador for TEARFUND Australia.
Joel will be exploring with us how creativity might just draw us deeper into both ourselves, the divine and the world around us. This is a workshop for anyone with a creative heart, you don’t have to be a writer or have any kind of skill level.
If you haven’t heard of Joel, know that Richard Rohr says of him, ‘We have always waited and asked for better windows, a truer lens, some ways to see the brightness and goodness that we somehow know is there. It is to this deeper, already knowing, that Joel McKerrow appeals. He draws us through a much better window.” So, friends, come and join us as we look through that truer lens and better window and see what we might see.
Brian McLaren, author/speaker/activist ~ says
“Joel McKerrow does what poets should do ... makes you laugh, think, cry, pray, hope, worship, wonder, and sit back and say, "Ahh, now I see!" In a time when politics, theology, and other important avenues of human intercourse suffer from a flatness of prose and a vacuum of meaning, Joel walks on stage just when we need him, sounding off with all the craft of a first-rate poet and all the verve of a first-rate performer.”
