How We’re Doing Our Part During This Corona Moment

With our mission of “building loving worlds through loving words”, we at The Poartry Project consider ourselves responsible, loving and engaged citizen-stewards – first and foremost – who contribute through community, care and cooperation for the common good. While we live boldly and fearlessly through the power of the forces of love and of good and through deep understanding of the energies and forces shaping our lives and world, it is the wellbeing of all that is ever in our hearts. So to do our part in this corona moment, we are making our upcoming April 18 Voicing Art Poetry Reading fully virtual, which is easy for us to do because we’ve had a livestreaming virtual option all along with 50% of our readers and listeners coming in virtually each time.

Please come together online in virtual community and sharing, even if you usually read your poetry in person and even if you’re in a part of the world where 2-3 pm US eastern is very late or very early for you. This is an unprecedented soulful moment where the most important things, people and potentials in life are calling for our attention. All of humanity is “on retreat” with a planetary invitation to be in greater contemplation, reflection and realization of what we can truly do and how very fast we can do it when we are all focused on a current common need. Imagine what humanity and the family of nations could do if they mobilized around causes for good and stewarding the daily health and wellbeing of our planet and all members of our communities as they are around the threat of a virus…

As most poets know and illuminate for us through their work, there is always more to life than meets the eye, and in this moment, magic is afoot.

In email communications and in person, so many of you thank The Poartry Project for the good work we are doing, what we bring to the community, the opportunities we create, the very real healing our poetry has provided to some of you, and what we stand for.

Through this, we know you value our work and recognize its importance. But the nourishing contribution and effort of The Poartry Project’s Voicing Art Poetry Reading Series and other initiatives doesn’t just grow on trees…

It needs to be watered and fueled… So please consider taking action in this special and unprecedented caring moment by becoming a sustaining PATRON OF POARTRY through an ongoing monthly contribution of $5-$10-$25-$50+. Or make a one-time contribution of your own inspiration and capacity – the amount is not so important; the nourishing giving and gratitude exchange in recognition of all The Poartry Project gives is.

A SPECIAL THANK YOU

For those becoming sustaining PATRONS OF POARTRY this month and through April Poetry Month, we will gift you with a signed copy of our Voicing Art: Poetry of Space | Place | Time book.
