Poetry as Meditation, featuring Connie Worthy

12:00 pm to 1:00 pm  -  Register on Eventbrite

In this workshop, participants will be guided in an exploration of finding inner peace and calm. Participants will be given time to free write and encouraged to share, then the experience will close with a meditation and reading of the collaborative group poem.

Connie Worthy, LMHC, is a Licensed Mental Health Counselor and co-founder of Subtle-Arts.com. Her reverence for the written word was developed as an English Major at Rollins College, and her love for its therapeutic use was solidified when she facilitated her first Hope at Hand group as a graduate intern nearly ten years ago. Connie is passionate about helping each person uncover their gifts, recognize their innate value, and find - and use - their voice.

Spoken Word, featuring Bee

12:00 pm to 1:00 pm  -  James Weldon Johnson Park

My spoken word set will include a selection of poems that resonate the Spirit of finding one’s strength, words, encouragement, love and resilience through the eyes of a young artist and poet experiencing this life and becoming more in tune with the divine path.

I am Bee. An artist, poet, event curator, community advocate, lover and human. I’m my journey I seek to share intimate moments in hopes to organically connect with those who seek to hear my words. I am an advocate for supporting artists 24/7 and I do my best to showcase a wide range of talent in the spaces I host.
