Season 03 Episode 06 of the Intralingo World Lit Podcast
I’m here today with a little something different: a short reading from the novel The Island of Missing Trees, by Elif Shafak, and an offer.
Wayfarers 360° Experience
The Wayfarers 360° Experience is a whole body, whole-hearted exploration, through the pages of a book. Over six weeks, we’ll read a novel together, at a
leisurely pace, savoring it from the outside in and looking at it from our inside out. At the end of each week, we’ll meet live, online to delve deep and share.
Week 1, we’ll set our intention and consider how we might read more mindfully. On each of weeks 2 through 5, we’ll move through the book on our own, at the same pace, reading
just a few chapters at a time. Then, when we gather, we might explore the setting through body and senses, delve into our heart reactions to the story and characters, or examine themes and topics with our minds. Finally, in Week 6, we’ll reflect on all we’ve discovered.
Our experience unfolds in a welcoming, expansive, deeply held space. It’s a place where you can be fully you, expressed and appreciated. Together, in our small group, we’ll open ourselves up and deepen our connection to “the other” in books and one another in reality.
