Tanja Bechtler and Bob Teixeira musicians

Annual Free Program
for Charlotte Friends of Jung

Enter the holiday season with candlelight, flowers and the Ecstatic: think of the words roots: elation, rapture, trance. Rumi, Hafez, Kabir and the long list of poets whose work has needed to be released from their cages, to quote Robert Bly, into a free verse form that brings hope and redemption to our 21st century souls. Local poets take a turn reading and discussing their favorite ecstatic poems with impromptu musical accompaniment by Tanja Bechtler, cellist.
