Poetry, World, & Spiritual Thought
From the ancient Hindu scripture, Bhagavad Gita, to the soulful & philosophical musings of Jean Biès, to the existential awe found in Rilke’s Duino Elegies, to the nature-based songs sung by the South American Yawanawa tribe, to the myriad of Goddesses as they appear in Awakening Shakti, to the mystical Sufi poetry written by Rumi & Hafiz – this class will take you on an exploratory journey through multiple worlds of poetic, spiritual thought. My hope is that you finish this semester as a more open-minded, informed, curious, peaceful human being.
For a final project, you will have the option of responding to one of our course themes in either an academic, thesis-driven research essay, or in a creative fashion of your choosing.
