Body Poetry is a four-week course inviting you into the wisdom of your own body. There is a knowing that exists in our flesh, bone, sensation, impulse, feeling. Over the course of four sessions, we will explore ways of unearthing and nourishing this knowing through writing, movement and meditation. Together, and alone, we will step into the fullness of belly, word, heart, hand, and voice. We will dance with our words, and tell stories with our bodies. We will give space to the language of the body, honouring its dreams and desires. We will witness our own and each other’s humanness, celebrating ourselves just as we are. We will also spend time outside in the Alexandra Palace Park, opening ourselves to the body of wisdom that exists in Nature. We will discover, release, and create.

Alexandra Palace is a charity, run for the benefit of everyone. Our Park, Palace and spectacular events have been enriching lives since 1863, but the coronavirus pandemic has hit us hard. To be blunt, we are looking at a £1m shortfall this year and the same again next year. We know this time has been hard on many people but, if you can afford it, your support will help us get through this crisis.
