Kim Rosen - Speaking the Soul

Can someone really be saved by a poem? Kim Rosen’s answer is a resounding “yes!” A poet performance artist and teacher of self inquiry, Kim sees poetry as “our most ancient form of prayer” and believes it is especially relevant in these times of global and personal uncertainty. Kim has touched listeners far and wide with poetry’s power to awaken, inspire, and heal. She speaks the poems of modern and ancient visionary poets to music in a way that “wakens and nourishes the soul”, in the words of Thomas Moore, author of Care of the Soul. Kim offers a whole new approach to poetry, encouraging you “to feel the poem as a healing medicine, which can bring every level of your being - body, mind, feelings, and soul - into alignment with what matters most to you.”

The Linenhall Arts Centre acknowledges the financial support of the Arts Council in making this performance possible.
