Poetry & The Genuine: Now I Become Myself

I am thrilled be co-leading this retreat at the beautiful Kirkridge Retreat Center in Pennsylvania with some of my favorite people in the world who inspire me everyday: my family.  For writers of all levels of experience.

Using a variety of techniques taken from Writing Seminars, Circle of Trust groups, the Alexander Technique, and Dance/Movement Therapy, this retreat will provide tools for each of us to better understand how and when we move between being “centered” and “off center.” Additionally we hope to show how recognizing our present-moment experience can serve us in discovering our genuine voice and expression as we write our poems and share our stories.

The retreat begins at 5:00 pm on Friday September 23rd 2017 and concludes after lunch on Sunday September 25th. For more information, and to register:
