Simone Weil: Gravity and Grace

In this class, we will read and write our way through Weil’s personal notes, brought together under the title Gravity and Grace. These writings take on Simone’s thoughts on friendship, politics, love, mysticism, organized religion, prayer, and much more. We will also write poems in response to the readings, and workshop together in a group setting.
