Cultivating and Befriending the Imagination Talk


The human imagination is an essential natural resource, not rare, but precious. Based on her work as a poet-in-the-schools, her practice as an artist, and her great love of metaphor and dreams, Ruth’s experiential talk celebrates the immensity, wisdom and beauty of the imagination. After presenting some of the children’s art and poems as inspiration, Gendler will offer exercises that invite us to look with the eyes of imagination, put our ears to the ground and listen, and befriend our imaginations. We also consider how to sustain the creative impulse and keep the creative spirit alive in daily life.  This talk is for everyone, not just those who consider themselves “creative.”  RSVP by June 7.
