learning experiences & ideas that offer you a sustained encounter with a way of being in the world …
… that resists the tug toward busyness and distraction …
…as much about helping you create meaningful rhythm & form in your life as helping you hone your poetic craft.
whereas the broader culture tends to cultivate desires that lead to empty consumption & feeling thwarted …
… I value the more natural pangs that we can satisfy through engagement with the natural world, authentic relationships, inquiry, art, & poetry.
we can spend a lot of time feeling compromised by things that don’t actually matter, or we can do the necessary work to liberate ourselves from what holds us back.
poetry is a way of understanding what it means to be alive–as we are, in our time.
a way that allows & unfolds the questions, & the mysteries, rather than suppressing them.
contemplative & creative practices can change the way we look at the world, how we think & feel, and what we make of our time here.
engage with the process, the big questions.
find the space to remake your days in small & large ways, so that they’re hospitable to your best creative work.
WHO ARE YOU WHEN NO ONE IS LOOKING?
abstain. reclaim. align…
your lifestyle with what really matters.
something is ready to manifest through you.
