Shamanic Poetry Writing
Time & Location
About the Event
Both poetry and shamanic journeying reveal deep truth and wisdom through powerful imagery. When we read and write poetry, as with journeying through guided meditation, we leave the linear world of logic and reasoning and enter a fluid, feminine realm where the process of receiving wisdom, healing, and insight is an immediate and embodied experience—with the right image, we experience in a flash a level of understanding that could not have been reached even through reading a whole library of prose.
In this online workshop we will explore a two-step process that will take us first on a journey within to access our deepest insight and wisdom, and then provide space for us to spin that raw material into a poem that will deliver this understanding straight into the hearts of others.
You don't need to have any experience with meditation or shamanic journeying to participate. You need never have written a poem in your life. This is a safe space to play and explore your own creativity. It will be a supportive and caring environment where you will certainly have fun and feel refreshed--maybe even surprised--as you get back in touch with the fire of self-expression burning within.
Over the course of the two sessions, you will learn about the power of the imagination in self-healing and world creation. You will learn about the power of poetry to move others and reclaim meaning. And you will explore your own voice, what you have to say and share in this potent transitional time on the planet.
Participation in both sessions is recommended. In fairness to our participant poets, you can only attend the second session if you attended the first. Cost for both sessions is $45. To be paid prior to the first session by Venmo or Paypal.
