Poetry of the Senses: A Bibliotherapy Expedition for Writers and Word Lovers

Monday, April 9 at Doktor Luke’s Coffee House, 6-7:30 PM


How can we engage with our senses to treat stress and anxiety? In this workshop, participants will slowly read and meditate on 5 Japanese haiku (translated into English) that explore sensory encounters with nature. Writer and literature expert Julie Sutherland will guide participants in the choral reading and discussion of two other poetic forms. There will also be an opportunity to write our own haiku. 

Poet Jen Cooper will be on hand to guide us through meditation and offer assistance and feedback on our own poetic practice. 


  • Participation by cash donation during the workshop. 
  • Complimentary coffee and tea will be provided by Doktor Luke’s.
