Spiritual Preparation, Workshop 14: The Poetry Slam

In "Exploring Our Values Through Poetry," a Tapestry of Faith program

You have worked hard to bring the participants to this point. Before their performance they are bound to be anxious. Your role as a "nonanxious" presence will be very important. How do you get to a place of relative calm within yourself? What helps you keep things in perspective? Some people find it useful to visualize an event before it happens. To do this, get comfortable in a place where you do not expect distractions. Close your eyes and visualize this workshop, from the Opening you have prepared, through the performances, to afterward when you will receive everyone's heartfelt congratulations and give participants your own. Know down deep in your heart that you can deal with any obstacles. Know that youth can look to you to help them shine... and go do it!
