As you all may know, in addition to being a poet, I’m also a postpartum doula for Birthwell LA and my own company, Umeboshi Babies~Naturally-Minded Postpartum Doula Services, and the founder/editor of Red Sky: A Literary Journal. I have newly created a site for my newest endeavor: Sacred Poetics Los Angeles.
What are sacred poetics? They are the words we create to explore our lives, our dreams, and our inner journeys. They manifest on the page as a narrative, a brief image, a moment, a meditation. Many people find their way to these manifestations through journaling. However, through compassionate dialogue and sharing, we can hone and develop this work into something more formed. We gather together in the safety of a group, we make the space sacred, and we support each other in assembling a collection of words. At the end of the workshop series, we put this collection into book form. Beautiful papers and adornments hold our one-of-a-kind book of sacred poetics.
I hope you will check out the site, and if you live in LA, enroll in a workshop!
