Master Class: The Theory and Practice of Trust [Luis Alberto Urrea]
We will pursue a fresh collaborative approach with the abiding spirit of writing as it inhabits texts in non-Western traditions. We will discuss certain Zen and Haiku approaches to writing, as well as lessons gleaned from my teachers in the healing world for my novel The Hummingbird’s Daughter. You will find some wisdom in this area in the work of William Stafford. Robert Hass, Basho, Issa, and Buson. I will bring texts; you bring a notebook. We will honor the body and the voices that hide within it, we will honor place, and we will honor understory. Be prepared to ask questions.
