Soul Fury: An Evening with Coleman Barks


Saturday, December 6

Jeanne D'Arc Auditorium, St. Catherine University
*Book signing to follow event*

Barks will read poems rich in beauty and spiritual insight that capture the delight and the impermanence of bonds that pierce deep into the human mind, heart and soul. Besides illuminating the mindful, meaningful practice of the soul friendship, Barks will also reflect on learning in his own life.

Come revel in the words  inspired by this great friendship, and savor this multidimensional feast of music, poetry and story that explores the nature of love, friendship and deep matters of the soul. The evening is co-sponsored by St. Catherine University Theology Department.

Musicians: David Whetstone and Marcus Wise

Join us for Session Three with Michael Dennis Browne

Session 3: Assisting in the Birth of Beginnings: Advent, Solstice and a New Year. Approaching this season, words for what has been, for what is and what might be, abound. Regret, resolution, rebound, and renew can dominate vocabularies in ways that are helpful or off-putting. Join with others in exploring words for the birth of beginnings.

Guest Poet, essayist and lyricist Michael Dennis Browne is Professor Emeritus in English at the University of Minnesota.
