Workshops

The workshops I teach revolve around Creativity, Poetry, and Haiku. Usually, all three topics are involved within the workshop depending on the participants and their focus of interest and learning. My definition of creativity is very broad, and I believe everyone is creative no matter what your job, skill, or craft is. 

Creativity

The focus of creativity in a workshop is to demystify what creativity is and have the participants realize they are creative even though people have told them in the past that they are not creative, or they believe they are not creative. The mission is to explore what form of creativity is calling you. What have you dreamed of creating though you have felt unable to start the process?

Haiku

Usually, we start putting words together in the Japanese Haiku form since it has a simple structure. It consists of three lines of 5 syllables, 7 syllables & and 5 syllables. It also has a nature theme involved which brings the participant outside of themselves to look and see what is available for them to capture in the moment.

Poetry

Writing poems from the participants experience is a possible next step. Once the participant is familiar with the simpler Haiku style, they may be curious to explore the more metaphorical longer poems. I don’t focus on things being right or wrong. Rumi said “…Out beyond ideas of wrongdoing and rightdoing there is a field. I’ll meet you there.”
