Tyler Knott Gregson: Miracle in the Mundane
Thursday March 7: 7:00PM – 8:00PM
It’s hard times out there. In what seems like a never-ending cycle of frustrating news and difficult world events, most of us our constantly searching for any outlet possible for self-care and soothing. More than ever, we need the newest book by Insta-poet sensation Tyler Knott Gregson.
In Miracle in the Mundane: Poems, Prompts, and Inspiration to Unlock Your Creativity and Unfiltered Joy, Tyler gives his fans what they need most right now -- he pulls back the curtain on how to unlock creativity, lead a more mindful and compassionate life, and shows us how he finds the beauty in the mundane moments in our lives.
As with Tyler’s previous books, Miracle in the Mundane showcases his inspiring poems in his signature typewriter style, while also giving readers insights into how to uncover creativity, find inspiration, and live a life that is "more." Each section includes a challenge (write, draw, photograph, etc.) designed to push readers out of their comfort zones and see the world differently, with prompts like:
- “Take an ache, make it sing”: Write a poem, be it a haiku or free verse, about something or someone you’re passionate about and yearning for.
- “Clean your slate”: Learn for yourself what’s worth keeping in your life, what is worth adding to, and what needs to go away.
- “Be a conduit, not a conductor”: Stop fighting your thoughts and let them work for you instead.
- “Break it up, build it down”: Sift through your life and see which doors can be safely closed, leading to the triumphant opening of others.
Featuring exercises on mindfulness and self-expression, as well as one of his signature poems for every prompt, Miracle in the Mundane is a primer to broaden your heart and mind to see the miracles hidden all around you.
Join us as Tyler reads from his new collection, followed by a book signing.
