Crossing The Borders

A Writing Workshop with Deena Metzger 

 

 

Who are we when we carry the Other inside us?  Who do we become when the hidden is revealed?  Which borders are you longing to cross? What possibilities occur when we cross the boundaries between cultures, races, politics, religions, genders, species, classes, histories, peoples, countries?  A weekend of inquiry and revelations, writing, storytelling, dream-telling, remembering.

Let this be a passport to new territories.
