'In Ashes' Having the Conversation About Faith with poet Susan Lindsay

In Ashes
Having the Conversation –
About Faith

Starting, with Susan Lindsay
February 25th, 2013 Cost: € 55

The Harbour Hotel for
Five Monday evenings before Easter.

Faith, by definition, includes doubt. What do you put your faith in now?

What gets you out of bed in the morning?

Using poetry as a starting point, discuss questions of faith and disbelief with an experienced facilitator and former psychotherapist.

Susan Lindsay’s first book of poetry, Whispering the Secrets (Doire Press) was published in 2011. Her book The Love Crucible (Marino 1995) discusses life as a potential journey of transformation from the perspective of humanistic and transpersonal psychology.

Prayer is a poem by self declared atheist and poet laureate of the United Kingdom, Carol Ann Duffy in Theo Dorgan’s anthology of poetry: The Book of Uncommon Prayer (Penguin Ireland, 2007). Poets have expressed faith and darkness in lyrical and all manner of ways over the centuries. Their writings enable us a neutral space, in terms of religion, to open a conversation in a spirit of free enquiry.

You don’t need to know anything about poetry to join in this Socratic conversation and can be of any, or no, religion.
