Moses’ (Un)Becoming

Away from the palace and the bullrushes,
All the riches and the striking
Is the place where my path of un-becoming
Of diverting

Has been revealed.

My whole life I have been a prince enslaved. 
Not to Pharoah
But to the illusion that I am
who I am not.

How I will greet you, Ceaseless Becomer
I cannot say.
But as I remove what you have asked of me
I pray for the strength to witness my true self

That I will be whom I am meant to be.

And become.

Learning to Say "We": Writing Identity

In this immersion, we will reflect and expand on our personal experiences of identity, using writing exercises and in-depth discussions to think about, challenge, discover, explore, and experiment with different ways to identify ourselves, to consider how those ways connect us to and separate us from others, and how they represent and misrepresent aspects of who we are.

Four sessions, starting June 15th
