Poetry is a blend of intuitive listening and refined crafting that taps into the pulse of creation. Expressive writing practice can support us to connect with the core of transformative potential within our experiences.

Through practices to center the mind and connect with the Muse, writing exercises, poetry theory, and editing guidance, attendees will learn a process for tuning into and creatively recording your life experiences. We will use expressive writing as a way to digest and detangle the intensity of this time. Then we will explore the work of refining raw words into art that can broaden our understanding and become nourishment. All levels welcome, you don't need to consider yourself a writer to attend, and both total beginners and experienced poets will receive useful tools.

Whether you are crafting poems to be read and spoken or lyrics to be set to music, this workshop can help you write bars that are meaningful to you, learn to alchemize your experience into medicine, and cultivate a practice through which your writing and/or songcraft can become a healing art. Bring your journal and pen.

Invoking soulful living through art, healing practices, and embodiment education to inspire personal and collective liberation.
