Dear Energetic Readers and Writers, This year I was lucky to be part of an amazing project that started right here in Flagstaff, Arizona. I recorded five poems for Elizabeth Hellstern’s project, The Telepoem Booth, after she put out a call … Continue reading
We will begin this session of Writing the Energetic Body with an intention-setting ritual that will touch on each of the seven major chakras and their influence in our lives. We will stimulate the imagination and expand our perception for our best life in terms of each chakra, grounding it at the Root, stabilizing Scorpio energy into the Earth, and using that energy to sustain us as we rise up through the body and the chakras to the Crown and the atmosphere around us. We prepare to fully embrace the season of autumn, finding the balance between the necessity of letting go of what needs to leave and making space for what wants to enter, what will sustain us in the dark months ahead, and what we want to nurture and encourage to break through the frozen surface once spring arrives.

How do we nurture our creative dreams? How do we nurture love, give love, and receive love? Continue reading

Often, to write powerfully, even if only for ourselves, we have to move past what we “think” we should write. Have you ever asked yourself what your fears are about writing?
You don’t have to share your work with anyone, but if you are “dying” to tell a story and are afraid, chances are there is a part of you that is suffering for not letting it out.
Are you ready to let go of your intellectual understanding of what is “socially acceptable writing” and allow yourself to really say what you need to say?
Are you ready to let writing move through your body, into your energetic being, and trust what it’s saying to you?
Are you ready to release memories (or make up new ones), blocks, and sticky spots?
Are you ready for non-judgmental feedback, compassionate communication, and encouragement?
