These times are riven with anxiety and uncertainty.  Politics, religion, economics, our institutions, and even our family and community have all become unsure.  It might at first seem naive to suggest that now is the time to invoke beauty, but John O’Donohue, the Irish poet and philosopher, suggests that “the soul is hungry for beauty; we seek it everywhere in landscape, music, art, clothes, gardening, companionship, love, religion, and ourselves.  When we experience beauty, there is a sense of homecoming.”  Through poetry, music, and visual arts we will explore the healing we can encounter – and surely need – through beauty.
