Soma and the Soul

A space to explore the many facets of ourselves through somatic awareness, movement, creative writing, and depth work.

I am honored and deeply grateful to have received this year’s Janavi Held Endowed Poetry & Art Grant.  I will be using the grant to finish work on a collection of poetry and prose around topics, including: Motherline/maternal lineage, ancestral lands and leaving homelands, birthing oneself/coming into wholeness, mothering in all of its forms.
It is a profound honor to be seen and acknowledged, and I hope my work can bring some of that to others.

The workshops and practices I facilitate use our bodies, our imaginations, our creativity, our emotions, and our intuitive minds to be more of who we are. They bring together the deeper, and sometimes unconscious, parts of who we are with the tangible experience of being a body on this earth.

This work presupposes a wisdom and intuitive knowledge within each of us that can reveal and express the complex layers of our experiences in creative ways.

The hope is that the workshops offered here will be an open and non-judgmental space of invitation to connect to and express ourselves through multiple mediums. It isn’t intended to be therapy or a training of any kind, but rather a way to take time for self-exploration and self-discovery that is primarily and foremost for you and your body/heart/mind/soul.

“The doors to the world of the wild Self are few but precious. If you have a deep scar, that is a door, if you have an old, old story, that is a door. If you love the sky and the water so much you almost cannot bear it, that is a door. If you yearn for a deeper life, a full life, a sane life, that is a door”.
