Ecstatic Poetry as a Visionary Art: An Evening Lecture at the East West Bookshop
I am absolutely overjoyed to be welcomed as a guest lecturer at the East West Book Shop, the "Spiritual Heart of Silicon Valley." On the evening of March 29th, 2017, I will be presenting an evening exploration of ecstatic poetry. Together, we will go on a journey deep into ecstatic poetry as a visionary art, detailing its history and practice, and culminating with my own more contemporary ideas that I've been gathering these past many years. The East West Book Shop is one of the oldest and most well-known holistic bookstores in the Bay Area. It is an HONOR to be presenting there! Stay tuned for much more information, and check out the description on their March calendar!
Science & Soul: Guidance into Purposeful Manifestation
I am honored and elated to be presenting at this summer's "Science and Soul: Guidance into Purposeful Manifestation" conference in Berea, Kentucky. It is truly humbling to be presenting alongside such incredible teachers and gifted facilitators. (The amazing davidji will be the event's keynote presenter, so you definitely don't want to miss out on this!!) I will be sharing ideas about the power of ecstatic poetry and its ability to connect us more deeper to our passions. It promises to be an AMAZING week in the Appalachian foothills!

The Path of Ecstatic Poetry: A Weekend Retreat
One of my favorite parts of the summer is having the honor of sharing the ideas and practices of ecstatic poetry as a part of Berea, Kentucky's annual "Festival of Learnshops." This summer, come and incubate your heart and your art in the Appalachian foothills as we explore ecstatic poetry as a visionary art. It will be a powerful, transformative weekend for us all. I would truly love to see you there. For more information or to register, please click here.
Ecstatic poetry is on the move, all the way to Hocking Hills, Ohio! Transformative poetry-as-practice meets those peace-loving, tie-dye-wearing hippie folks? Nothing could make more sense! The poetry booth will be more interactive than ever this year, complete with poetry busking, unique music, and as always, plenty of Word to share.
