Blazing Poetry: Poems and soul manifestos

A space to collect, discuss and post poems, stories and soul manifestos inspired by, through and beyond Campfire Convention!

In November, in a magical place (Selgars Mill in Devon), a dozen or more soul manifestos were born. They emerged from the individuals making up the second Trailblazers group in a workshop in which the intention was to give space to words that transform and tell new stories of soul, connection and change.

What emerged were beautiful, poignant, angry, loving, connecting, gentle, fierce and eloquent poetic manifestos of the soul. These are seeds of new stories for our times drawn from shared knowledge and humanity we all carry deep inside. In gathering words, connecting them and making them into something, we can conjure the psychological resilience and motivation that feeds the flames of our activism — “keeping the fires burning through winter” — as the Trailblazers slogan puts it.

So you are invited to post a poem, or a post about a poem or poetry here – and to develop your own soul manifesto for the future...
