Finding Your Balance: A series of workshops to restore and explore balance

Finding balance in university and in life is like finding balance on a bicycle. It’s not something you do with your mind; nor is it something you do once. It’s something you keep finding and correcting as the terrain changes. This is true of any activity: being on a boat, on your feet, in your life. Everything changes. How do you go forward? Use writing to look at the geography of your terrain: where you are, when you need to shift gears, where you’re stuck, when you fall, and what it’s like when you’re on the ride. With published poet, Ronna Bloom.
February 27: Rocking the Boat and Other Reasons We Don’t Ask For What We Want
March 6: Taking Your Whole Self To School
March 13:  Writing Your Way Out of A Paper Bag
 
Noon -1PM
Hart House 
Come to one or all three! Please register at: http://www.studentlife.utoronto.ca/leadership/events/Poet-in-Community.htm
