Haiku Circle: An invitation

Haiku is a Zen art form that can help us to reconnect with nature, a spiritual practice we can build into our lives. All we need is a pencil, notebook, a good pair of walking shoes, and time set aside to take a walk outside and sketch in a few words what’s in front of us. When we incorporate this practice into our lives, we may find our involvement with nature and life is greatly enriched.

Windhorse resident Patty Minx recently participated in a haiku workshop at the Upaya center in Santa Fe, NM. She is eager to share her delight in this art form with others who may be interested, so is inviting people to come together for a monthly haiku circle at the Windhorse center after the brunch following the Sunday program.

The first haiku gathering will be on Sunday, Feb. 25, 1 – 2:30 pm. If interested, feel free to contact Patty directly at patyminx@hotmail.com.
