An evening of poetry, storytelling & guided reflection

Event Details

Discover your own Camino. This may be a path you chose to take or something that happened which put you on a path. What inspired you on this journey? What changed in you? How do you continue to live this out in your life?

FACILITATOR:

Suzanne Doerge is a poet and adult educator who has worked with organizations at the local, national and international level to support voices of marginalized communities.  She brings these experiences to her facilitation of creative writing workshops. When walking the Camino de Santiago in 2016, with her life partner Joe Gunn, she wrote the recently published collection of poetry, Footfalls: Poems of the Camino.

For 16 years, Suzanne was Executive Director of  an Ottawa-based organization, City for All Women Intiative (CAWI),  and worked with many organizations developing workshop tools and guides to advance equity and inclusion. She loves to canoe, get lost in the woods, discover the universe in a wildflower, become landscape. Her grown children bequeathed her a room that gazes out onto the woods—Poetreehouse, where she writes. To learn more, visit: www.ripplingwaters.ca.
